Alexander Sadoyan

Alexander Sadoyan
Alexander Sadoyan is the March 2008 Digital Color Artist of the Month. Alexander was born in 1954 in Yerevan, Armenia and has resided in Los Angeles since 1996. He graduated from Terlemezian Art College of Fine Arts and has participated in more than 50 exhibitions.

Alexander paints forms and shapes to convey energy and spiritual conditions. He is inspired from life and nature. The colors and rhythms along with the mysterious inner life of mankind become his themes. His images are put together in a dreamlike sequence to reinforce the realty of metaphysical worlds.

Alexander has sold paintings in numerous auctions and his work is in private collections in the US, France, Germany, Canada, Russia, Switzerland, China, Norway and Lebanon. He is a member of the Artist’s Union of the Republic of Armenia and the International Association of Arts at UNESCO.

The Renowned Art Domain
Biographies of over 500 renowned artists are now indexed on this domain: by century (13th-20th Century), by artist's name, or from an alphabar. These are the most significant, famous, and influential figures in the history of art. The biographies emphasize the artistic style of the artists. Included is an index of female artists.

February marked the 10th anniversary of the Laguna Beach First Thursdays Art Walk. At the North end of Laguna, the Whitney Gallery exhibited wonderful pastel portraits by Bradford J. Salamon.
