Robert Elibekyan
Spectacle, year 2002, 26"x32" oil on canvas, framed size 36x42 in.



The painting sizes are 26x32 in. with framed sizes are 36x42 inches. The composition from Mysterious Theater series, Robert Elibekian specialized in the theatrical figures and artists. His paintings were admired for their richness of color and complex designs. Robert Elibekian’s works are captivating by their innate illumination glowing through the entire surface of the canvas. The paintings possess energy, which seems to undulate and morph from every angle and point of observation. The elegiac mood blends with the noble dynamism, captivating by its purity and refinement.” Robert Elibekian was born in 1941 in Tbilisi, Georgia; he has been a member of the Armenian Artist Union since 1970. For many years, he was successfully involved in stage design for theaters and film studios in Armenia and abroad. As a modern artist, Elibekian breaks through and moves beyond the harmony of form and color, gathering inspiration from the Greco-Roman era, to Asian art and Egyptian art. Listening to the notes of an internal symphony, the palette of Robert Elibekian brings “the fragrances of the East and the rhythms of the West” to create a space for which dancers and musicians come to life. Using the magic wand of his paintbrush, Elibekian “directs ballets of colors, creating at the same time ballerina, décor, and musical theme.” The gesture of the dancers are in a moment of choice in their movements of ebbs and flows, moving from harmony to harmony, decomposing and recomposing in a spectrum of crystal clear poses. “They are images in a musical ocean in which the fusion of colors give rise to a theatrical show, with each syllable charming our senses.” (Germak, Christian. Robert Elibekian. pp.4) In each of his paintings, from still lifes to figures, Elibekian shows us the supremacy of his expression. He orchestrates his art in a sense that moves far beyond descriptives. “Because Robert Elibekian does not speak in words when he wants to talk to us about a Garden of Eden where roses bloom; he lets us sense through our eyes the delicious, delicate taste of the scent of roses.” (Germak, Christian. Robert Elibekian. pp.4) Elibekian’s creative life was reflected in numerous personal exhibitions throughout the world. His art has been exhibited in several museums, including The National Gallery of Armenia, Museum of Modern Art of Yerevan, Matenadaran Museum, The Tretyakov Gallery. The Museum of Oriental Art Moscow, The Cafesjian Museum of Art in Armenia, The Alex Manoogian Museum of Detroit, Elyseum Palace in Paris, The White House in Washington DC., and the Zimerli Museum in New Jersey.
