Levon Lachikyan’s second art exhibition of the year, one commemorating 30 years of great work and held at Yerevan’s Naregatsi Art Institute, concluded this week. From September 28 until October 4, Levon’s exhibition, “Crossroads” featured 50 sketches on display for the public. The exposition’s core was the series, “Gyumri, My Love,” 15 works that reflect the artist’s birthplace and its distinct architecture, streets and landscapes.

“The buildings for me are not solely beautiful constructions, but castles of soul,” Levon explained.
