Lilya Kalashyan was born in the city of Yerevan and demonstrated an interest and talent in art at an early age. A major in graphic design, Lilya has had much success in exhibiting and selling her paintings all over the world. She has also been published in many Soviet art magazines.
In 1999, Lilya received a prestigious membership into the Republic Armenian Painter’s Society. She skilfully uses soft and beautiful colours which compel the viewer to almost reach out and touch her canvases. Okapi WAG has a few of her premium works on display.
