Passport Arts Launches Web Site Featuring Armenian Art

passportartMONTREAL—Passport Arts, based in Montreal, recently launched a unique and fascinating website displaying the works of major and emerging Armenian artists:

Those who have had the good fortune to visit the motherland understand why Armenia is called “an open air museum.” Everywhere one turns there is art, from monuments and khatchkars to murals and mosaics, from ornamented architecture to vibrant street markets.

Throughout its tragic and turbulent history, Armenia has remained a cradle of creativity. The creation of art has always been a way for Armenians to keep their spirit free and alive.

Passport Arts traveled to Armenia to explore the richness of the country’s contemporary art world. Now, on its website, fifteen artists and more than 150 artworks–paintings, photographs, collages–are featured. Many more artists soon will be added to the site.

Visit, view the artworks and meet the artists. The site is easy to navigate and showcases not only artists and their works, but Armenia, as well. And, if you see something you would like to make part of your life, please support the artists of Armenia. Artworks are shipped direct from Armenia to a worldwide market.
