This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1946, Hrair Diarbekirian attended the Academie Libanaise des Beaux Arts.  A staple of the Lebanese art scene since 1961, he has exhibited extensively in the Middle East, Europe, Asia and the Americas. He is the recipient of several awards, including gold medals from the Sursock Museum in Lebanon and the Sao Paolo International Biennial.

He has paintings housed in the collections of both statesmen and celebrities, most notably among the private holdings of Queen Elizabeth II of England, Prince Rainier of Monaco and actor Kirk Douglas.

Characterized by a soft, warm palette that is accentuated with delicate brushwork, his work often explores scenes from ancient mythology, employing grand iconography. A dominant theme of his canvases has been the visual history of man as a representation of strength?a narrative that he probes through heavy symbolism and legends. A frequent subject for the artist has been a confident steed that stands in for the image of man. Flanked by an idealized flower girl, who seems to become an extension of his elegant mane, the horse is rendered as the center of an abundant universe, demonstrating the intrinsic harmony that Diarbekirian strives to achieve in his work.
