Description

Children are symbols of our future. The painting, entitled “The Yard” is based on the depiction of children’s happy voices, in which we can see their friendly and easygoing environment: the yard. The yard is a safe-space of freedom, with every part of it being a protective, familiar space for young adults and children. (Arthur Hovhannisyan). Guaranteeing spaces of freedom at an early age is crucial for the further emotional, psychical, and social development of future generations to become self-conscious, mature and critical citizens.

Artist Statement

Because of geopolitical processes, children often need to leave their homes and familiar yards, which is an ever-burning problem in these days. Giving children the chance to have a peaceful and easygoing childhood should be everyone`s vital mission. (Arthur Hovhannisyan)
