Hripsime Margaryan -
the artist who captivates
and wins over through refinement

by Diana DUMITRU
All the art works stand out through the particular style of the author and the wonderful chromatic harmony. The works exhibited are the result of the refined taste of the artist and her master brush, which reveals her love for art.                                                                                                                                            

Hripsime Margaryan expressed her gratitude towards the kindness of the Ambassador Minasyan and Liana Minasyan, Embassy Counselor.                                                                                                            

In order to get more familiar with Hripsimes values and her work we prepare an interview with the artist for our next edition.
