Architect by profession, Matevosjan started his artistic career as interior designer. Later on, however, he has devoted his talents to creating designer jewelry and incredibly beautiful paintings. Georgi Matevosjan was born in Baku to Armenian parents, the son of the USSR State Prize laureate writer Hrant Matevosyan. In 1975 he graduated from the Volgograd Institute specializing in architecture. Worked as an architect, designer, studied jewelry making and small plastics. As a student, he did not part with a notebook, constantly sketching portraits of his friends. Today, the work of the Armenian painter are in museums and private collections in Russia, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Sweden, Italy, France, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Canada, America and Japan.
Influenced by his work with metals and precious stones , Matevosjan gives a great deal of attention to light. He studies its passage through transparent media such as water, glass and curtains; its reflection off and refraction in mirrors , metals and glass; and its fading away in darkness. His preoccupation with light has also influenced his choice of objects and scenes. He paints tears, glass, bubbles, balloons and transparent balls sous-pended in mountains and oceans or on the smooth bodies and faces of women, to express inner feelings, moods and cynicism. Besides exploring the depth of the human psyche, his paintings also search for solutions to the burning problems of environmental degradation. His preferred colors are shades of yellow, ochre and earth brown, and his painting style embodies elements of Surrealism , Cubism and Impressionism.
The Armenian artist Georgi Matevosyan is certainly a poet. Impeccable master of painting ethereal, able to animate everything with the touch of his talent, whether it is a painting, precious stone or metal. He creates unimaginable shades and shapes, shattering stereotypes, his art is a free flight of the imagination.
