  • About Assadour Bezdikian

    Assadour is born in Beirut in 1943, in a Lebanese-Armenian family. He went abroad at the age of 18 to study engraving and painting, first in Italy and later in Paris. Assadour is recognized as a great master in the field of engraving, and he developed a renowned oeuvre of gouaches on paper and oils on canvas. His paintings are rare and often sought after as he did not execute many.

    A recurrent theme in Assadour’s paintings, the figures are inserted in a land or cityscape which is only suggested by the geometric lines and shapes of the composition.

    This constructivist approach refers to Assadour’s attempt to put some order to the world’s chaos, like the one he experienced back in Beirut and just like the disorder he still sees today, and the first of all disorders, the Armenian genocide.

    In the artist’s latest works, monumental figures seem more and more to replace architectural structure and to be the core of the composition’s space.
