"...Kharatian transmits in his colorful works his
fascination for sculptural masses and flowing movement."
Marina Galvani, Art Curator
The World Bank Art Program
"With a sparkling palette glowing with dominant gold
and yellow tones, the paintings most immediately recall pages
from illuminated manuscripts, or Byzantine icons (...).
Kharatian's style is fundamentally abstract, in large part
based on a geometric simplification of natural form combined
with passages of greater description."
Art Historian, critic
