Hi, my name is Mher Chatinyan and I am from Vanadzor. I had never dreamt  about painting before, therefore nobody would know that one day I would become an artist.  But time passed and it turned out what it turned out to be. My paintings are about me: the more sincere are the paintings, the clearer is the image of the artist. I had an exhibition in Korea lately. You know what is the greatest thing here? People liked my paintings so much that they bought and held an exhibitions in Seul in their galleries. I will have more exhibitions in Yerevan, afterwards in Moscow in the near future.   “Sos Sargsyan” “The Mower” “My friend”

I strive for this, to portray the tragedy that grips when you listen to Mozart’s music».
