Mariam Arshaki Aslamazian (October 20, 1907, Bash-Shirak village, near Alexandropol – 2006, Moscow) was a Soviet painter, recognized as a People's Artist of the Armenian SSR (1965) and People's Artist of the Soviet Union (1990).


She was the sister of painter Yeranuhi Aslamazian. A large collection of their works is kept at the Aslamazian Sisters' Museum in their native Gyumri.

Aslamazian was the student of Stepan Aghajanian and Petrov-Vodkin. Her paintings evoke the dramatic, colorful themes of the period of her life.

While critics argue the relative strengths of her paintings, her exquisite ceramic plates are universally proclaimed masterpieces.[1]

Mariam Aslamazian died in Moscow, and was buried in Yerevan’s Komitas Pantheon.
