Atom Hovhannisyan (originally Hovhannisyan, August 19, 1981, Yerevan, Armenia – May 10, 2018, New York, USA) was a self-taught artist. His style of art was catalogued as “post divisionist and abstract".[1]

Biography and career

He born in Yerevan, Armenia, in 1981. When he was 16 years old, he emigrated with his family to the USA and settled in New York.[2] When he applied for and obtained US citizenship, due to a misspelling issue, his last name was changed from Hovhannisyan to Hovhanesyan.

He studied economics at St. John’s University, but in 2009 decided to pursue his vocation for art as a full-time artist.[3][1]

In the early years he was self-taught, influenced by artists like De Kooning and Kandinsky. Then he studied at the National Academy of New York and the Art Students League of New York.[3][4]

He defined himself as "Influenced by post impressionism with cubist approach to composition".[4] His art was based on the use of superimposed lines, straight or slightly curved, in ink, oil or pencil.[2][5] Hovhanesyan painted more than 200 paintings in his life.[1]

His artworks have been featured in art magazines, such as:
