Martiros Manoukian (1947 – present) is an Armenian artist who lives in the United States. Art aficionados call him “M. Martiros” — and that’s how he signs his paintings.
One distinctive aspect of Martiros’ work is its range of styles — from abstract figurative with vibrant color (“Untitled Portrait” 97) to representational figurative with muted color (“Graceful Pose”).
Whatever the style of a given piece, all works by Martiros contain animating elements — mood and movement.
