"As a full-time professional artist, I look at the beauty of the world and draw inspiration from it. In fact, all my creations are my perception of life, my philosophy of existence, my own reflection and a profound dialogue between my feelings, my heart and my soul. I love, I create because I'm alive. Because I'm free. Because this freedom was my destiny from the day I was born and I couldn't live without painting." - Hovhannès Haroutiounian
Hovhannès Haroutiounian was born in 1950 in Yerevan of Armenian parents. At 6 years old, he distinguished himself in painting. He won the Grand Prix of the Jury of the International Exposition in India at the age of 12.
He then began his higher studies and graduated from the Institut des Beaux-Arts in Yerevan. While in the USSR, art is inadvertently subordinated to socio-political reality, Hovhannès Haroutiounian, as soon as she finishes her studies, discreetly creates her own artistic environment to try to escape as much as possible from the Russian aesthetic canon banishing freedom of imagination.
In 1980, the city of Helsinki hosted the creations of Hovhannès Haroutiounian. This was the beginning of his artistic transition to the West. He then became a member of the Union of Painters of Armenia and Chairman of the Recruitment Jury of the Foundation of Artists-Peinters of Armenia.
1991, Hovhannès Haroutiounian initiated and actively participated in the creation of the Atelier de l'Arménie at the Cité internationale des Arts in Paris. Then, to mark the recognition of the Armenian Genocide by the French Parliament in 1998, the artist created the work "24 April 2015". It is on display at the Salon d'Automne in Paris and is offered by the Dispora Arménienne de France to the French National Assembly to thank France for its position in favour of recognizing the genocide.
At the request of the local religious authorities, Hovhannès Haroutiounian decorated the new Armenian Church in Piatigorsk in 2003. He became the founding President of the KERPAR Association of Artists and Artists of Armenia in Yerevan in 2004.
