Edvard Sasun is one of the most highly qualified living artists in the world today. His work draws from a rich system of symbols, themes and motifs that are often missed by the casual observer.

Edvard Sasun (Edvard Avagian) was born in Armenia in 1955. He began to draw at an early age and also studied physics and mathematics while pursing his career as an artist. After completion of his formal education in 1977 he moved to St. Petersburg in 1978 to continue his artistic development at the Repin Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture.
