Ruben Adalyan

Ruben Adalyan is one of the prominent figures of late modern Armenian art. In 1956 he graduated from the Yerevan Institute of Fine Arts and Theater, and then began a prolific practice, working in the field of painting, graphic art and sculpture. 
Adalyan became fully beholden to the ideas of modernist art since his student years, and was particularly influenced by the trajectories of Pablo Picasso's and Yervand Kochar's artistic evolution. During the Khrushchevian 'Thaw’ period in the 1960s, Adalyan announced himself to the Armenian and Soviet viewers with a series of bravely experimental works that rejected the ideological framework of socialist-realist art, through a unique synthesis of surrealism, cubism, and expressionism. 

His works are kept in the Armenia National Gallery (Yerevan), Modern Art Museum (Yerevan), other museums of Armenia, as well as in many private collections in Armenia and abroad.
