Ruben Abovian was born in 1948 in Yerevan, Armenia. Having exhibited his work since 1972, Abovian's unusual talent and style has been recognized by important art critics throughout the world. With a profound knowledge of traditional and contemporary art, Abovian creates paintings with a unique blend of classic technique with mysterious, whimsical and spirited characters and settings.

Abovian's works are painted with a masterful hand; his brushstrokes are expressive and his paintings are awash in color and movement. Some of his works seem to be his interpretation of master works of the past, but he introduces his own personalities to the scene and he seduces the viewer with bursts of mystery and sensuality.

Ruben Abovian has exhibited extensively worldwide and his paintings hang in many corporate collections. In addition, he has been on the Board of Directors of the Union of Artists of Armenia and the U.S.S.R., and since 1991, Abovian has held the title of Honorable Artist of the Republic of Armenia.
