Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Carlos Sayadian

Carlos was born in 1948, in Yerevan, Armenia. He was only 13 when he was nominated as the first prize winner at an exhibition dedicated to the 40th anniversary of Soviet Armenia while still attending H. Kodjoyan’s Children’s Fine Arts School. After completing H.Kodjoyan’s school (1959 to1964) he enrolled at the Terlemezian’s Fine Arts College where he displayed an exceptional talent and interest towards the portraiture of a woman with great success. After graduating from the college, Carlos was accepted into Yerevan’s State Institute of Theatrical and Fine Arts where he attended from 1968 to 1975. While a student at the state institute, he participated in several inter-republic exhibitions.
His working years at the Yerevan’s National Theatre of Opera and Ballet have been enriched with numerous new friendships with famous people, who in turn have left a favorable influence on the development of the artist’s personality. Beginning from the children’s fine art school and continuing through the end of the university Carlos has gone through an enormous educational growth based on scrupulous study of classical arts. However, the artist feels that he is still learning. The artist’s own intense search for own style between national/oriental flat surfaces and the western classical/3-dimensional paintings ended with the victory of the latter. The transition towards the classical method and its strengthening first appeared in the landscapes full of poetry and romantism. Starting in the early 80’s he had no second thoughts about his chosen path.

Since 1979 Carlos was a member of USSR Artists Union for which he had to have participated in at least 3 all-union and several inter-republic art exhibitions. His first individual show was in Romania, Bucharest where he was representing the Soviet Union. Along his landscapes, Carlos displayed different compositions and received an approval from the art critics for his excellent contributions to the field of arts. The media also welcomed him into the chain of international exhibitions. In 1990, Carlos’ individual exhibition was opened in Los Angeles with unprecedented success.
