Biography Garri Eduard Dadyan
Born 1952 in Baku, Azerbaijan, Dadyan is known for repousse metalwork.* (See below for further explanation). He was an ethnic Armenian from Baku, Azerbaijan, and was born of a formerly aristocratic family. His paternal grandfather, Aristarches Melic Dadayan, had changed his name to the more proletarian sounding "Artur Dadyan" at the time of the Russian Revolution. Melic means "Prince" in Armenian, and the surname "Melic Dadayan" was a well-known Armenian aristocratic surname.
Garri has named his House of Design "Melic Dadayan" to resurrect this family history.
