"Robert Elibekian's works are captivating by their innate illumination, glowing and spreading through the entire surface of the canvas. The paintings possess energy, which seems to undulate and morph from every angle and point of observation. The elegiac mood blends with the noble dynamism, captivating by its purity and refinement."

Henrik Igitian,
Art critic,
Founder of Museum of Modern Art, Yerevan, Armenia


Robert Elibekian was born in April 1941 in Tbilisi. In 1960 he moved to Armenia and settled in Yerevan. The same year he entered the Yerevan Arts and Theater Institute.
