A workshop preceded by a lecture on Armenian script will be taught by an artist and photographer Ruben Malayan (1971). He is a graduate of painting at the Terlemezian Art College and of graphics at the National Institute of Fine Arts in Yerevan, Armenia.
Over the past few years, Ruben has been working on „The Art of Armenian Calligraphy”, a publication focusing on the history, evolution and traditions of the Armenian script. His main objective is to prepare the necessary basics required for the reintroduction of calligraphy to the diaspora and the Armenian educational program. Ruben’s works were selected as an example of Armenian script in „The World Encyclopedia of Calligraphy: The Ultimate Compendium on the Art of Fine, Writing-History, Craft, Technique” (Sterling Publishing, 2011). He is also the author of the chapter on Armenian script in the book.
Ruben Malayan is also the initiator of the „Armenian Genocide of 1915 in Contemporary Graphic and Art Posters 2001-2015″ project, which gained recognition in publications and magazines around the world. Ruben has exhibited his works both locally and abroad.
