Born in 1991, studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague (2011-2017). Lives and works in Prague.
Several interesting moments appear in the Entity Series. In relation to painting, the artist touches upon the classical genre of portraiture, and in relation to digital technologies, he thematizes the various applications that deal with the processing of human faces. These allow us to play all sorts of games, for example to distort our looks as in a crooked mirror or to grow old instantly, and their plethora corresponds to the formal variety of his paintings, executed in a smooth, impersonal brushwork. On the other hand, there are facial-recognition programs that can keep one under constant scrutiny, and this context is less funny. The relevance and topicality of Alaverdyan’s paintings is not in the contemporary issues, but precisely in the fact that they also contain this critical and disturbing aspect. (Marcel Fišer, 2022)
