Quotes on Levon Lachikyan
‘’I am immensely impressed by Levon Lachikyan’s drawings. They are elegant and sensitive works with the sense of space and fine composition.
It is of great importance that Levon’s drawings are not simple reproductions of the substance or mere documentation. Along with presenting the architectural details of various constructions he is able to abstract from them and manifest his individual attitude towards the matter’’.
Hagop Hagopian, Armenian prominent artist
“A lot of people have written about culture and a lot of them will still write. However, I strongly believe that not everyone should write about art and generally culture. Only those, who, firstly, love and then understand the art. Levon Lachikyan’s articles are marked by the synthesis of these two. As a result, the reader waits for his articles. An appraisal, considered the highest for any author”.
