Misak Cholokyan was born in 1976 in Krasnodar. The artist graduated Krasnodar Art School of Repin.

The main idea of Misak’s works is not replicating the reality but projecting his own impression onto the artwork. The paintings of the artist are a result of an analysis of the structures of different objects and phenomena. Misak’s main initiative force is denial: he pushes forward based on something simple in order to investigate the subject as precisely as possible. This process is similar to going to another dimension, that is why the artist’s works have such an epic vibe. The works of Misak are a path through chaos of unstructured impressions to creating his own universe.
