Vardan was born in 1968. he is a

third-generation sculptor in his family. After

had his first solo exhibition at the age of ten.

After graduating, he was accepted into the art

school for the future students of The Academy

of Fine Art. He comes from one of the prominent

Armenian dynasties of Karabakh, the dynasty

of Melik Egan, the son of the Catholicos Gukas

family roots began during the Second Jerusalem

Temple, when in the First Century of BC, his and

several other noble families of Jerusalem were

invited to move to Armenia by the Emperor

Tigranes the Great.

matter into an extraordinary form that

connects the realm of dreams and emotional

fillings with the material world. Archaic
