"Everything began in January of 1953, when I was born in a world called Armenia. I was enslaved by art at a very early age, I studied at art schools and I became a soldier in the great battlefield of art. I observed the great masters and I dreamed. It is very hard when you write about yourself, because the whole truth stand tall in front of you, incomprehensible and mysterious.

I learned from Donatello, Michelangelo, the entire Renaissance, the Baroque era, the Great School of Spain. I was fascinated by the mysterious and profound world of El Greco, Velasquez, Goya, Surbaran and Rivera.

It is a unique state of bliss when you create, you feel the mysterious meaning in the creation of the whole world, you hear the echo of distant worlds, and you become the linking chain between the old and the new.

My objective are beauty, love and force.

My ultimate goal is love" - Emil Kazaz
