GLENDALE–A rare solo exhibition of works by internationally acclaimed artist Hagop Hagopian will run at Glendale’s Harvest Gallery from January 21 to February 6–and will feature works spanning the last decade.
The artist’s first solo exhibition in the United States in more than five years will present over 25 watercolors and oil paintings
Hagopian’s canvases evoke a profound sense of realism through the use of oils and watercolors that enhance images–symbols–scenes–and ideas. "His transparent hues and clear graphic lines are so perfect that they seem to be unsurpassable. With each new work–Hagopian proves that there is no limit to perfection. Only a great master can do that," says famed artist Jean Carzou.
Born in Alexandria–Egypt in 1923–Hagopian was educated in Paris and Cairo at the Institute of Fine Arts and the Acadmie de la Grande Chaumire–respectively. Hagopian moved to Armenia in 1962–where he worked as a design artist in a textile factory in Gyumri.
His first solo exhibit was in 1963 in Armenia’s capital–Yerevan. In 1977–Hagopian was awarded the State Prize of Armenia and the People’s Artist of Armenia. In 1986–he won the coveted State Prize of USSR for this pictorial of My Land and was elected a full-member of the Academy of Arts of the USSR. Hagopian has exhibited throughout the world including in Cyprus–Finland–France–Germany–Lebanon–the United Kingdom–and the US.
Hagopian’s exhibit will be on display from Friday–January 21 through Sunday–February 6. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday 11:00AM to 7:00PM. For general information about the exhibit–call Harvest Gallery at 818.546.1000.
