Vahagn Jivanian was born in 1973, in Gyumri, Armenia. From 1990 to 1994, he studied at the Yerevan State Academy of Fine Arts. He then further enriched his education at the Repin Academy of Arts in St. Petersburg in the years 1994 through 1999.
Jivanian focuses on dreamy, atmospheric seascapes that envelop the observer. The misty sunrises and subtly lit sunsets are reflections of Jivanian's poetic concept of harmony and beauty.
