Armand Tatossian and The Forcefulness of Art

Armand Tatossian at work.

Extracted from the late artist's website. Please click here.
When I meet Tatossian, he tries to explain his art, talking in a soft voice with a slight Armenia accent. He reminds me of one of the hobbit characters from the LORD OF THE RING, a comfort-loving person, who surprises even himself by his resourcefulness and skill as a painter." You are born with a technique and it develops with time," he says. Drawing is important. I am drawing all the time, with the brush."
