Born in Georgia in 1960 , but raised in Erevan , Armenia.
Having found his theme once, Tigran Matoulian follows it very seriously and consistently, trying to experience all its profundity.
There is no doubt, that the source of the artist's inspiration is the East, with its refined sense of decorativeness. The aesthetic passion of Matoulian towards the ornament, refers us to Byzantine mosaic and jeweler art, to Armenian, Persian carpets and fabrics, or to Indian printed cloth.
He masters organically vivid patterns, abstracts the reality, ciphers a certain object, but he never burns the bridges between the figurativeness and abstractness.
