Born in Yerevan (Armenia) in 1970, Areg Elibekian grew up in his father’s studio, never wishing for anything other than to be an artist himself. At 16, he was the youngest student at the Yerevan State Institute of Theatre and Fine Arts, becoming a member of the Artist’s Union of Armenia and even having his first exhibition. In 1993, he arrived in Montreal, settling in the Saint-Laurent borough where, dedicated to his career, he spent over twenty years working as a painter and art teacher. Areg Elibekian often travels to Europe each year and has stayed numerous times at the Cité Internationale des Arts de Paris (France), of which he is a permanent member.
