Andranik Avetisyan (Armenian: Անդրանիկ Հովհաննեսի Ավետիսյան; born 28 December 1968, in Gyumri) is an Armenian artist. The main subjects of his work[1] include life, human relations, energy, space, and beginning.[specify]

He noticed a cobweb[2] in the corner of the window in his studio.[3] Then he had the idea to create a picture[4] of a cobweb,[5] and began to study the life of spiders,[6] and the structure of their cobwebs.[7] Afterwards, he began to breed spiders[8] in order to use their cobwebs to create pictures. Avetisyan's works are made of real cobweb[9] and this brought him fame almost instantly.[10] He is the first artist who uses cobwebs for pictures (Cobweb art).[11] Andranik Avetisyan was awarded the "New Talent and Creative Thought" prize at the Cannes International Exhibition of Modern Art, which was held in 2017.[12][13]

Andranik Avetisyan says: "a cobweb in nature is a picture of energy making a connection among all the objects the universe".
