Dilanchyan began his artistic journey at a very young age, starting art lessons at six and later graduating from the State University of Arts in Yerevan from 1976 to 1980 with a degree in Fine Art. During this time, he joined the prestigious Young Artists Association of the Republic of Armenia. His early works focused on mythical themes inspired by old masters like Caravaggio, Rubens, and Rembrandt, using techniques of pencil and charcoal drawings.
Later in his career, Dilanchyan was influenced by the impressionist movement of the 19th century. His art shifted towards capturing the essence of his subjects through short, thick strokes of paint and vibrant impasto colours. His technique emphasizes the interplay of light and colour, focusing on reflection and optical mixing.
His recent works focus on the female form amidst symbolic backgrounds, evoking drama, music, and melody themes. In 1992, Dilanchyan moved to the United States, which proved to be a turning point in his career, providing him with new opportunities to refine his techniques and explore colour concepts in still life and landscapes.
His art gained recognition through exhibitions at Mark Alan Galleries in Laguna Beach and Newport Beach from 1994 to 1996 and numerous group shows across Fresno, Whittier, LA, and San Francisco. Dilanchyan’s artworks have garnered international recognition and are cherished by private and corporate collectors worldwide.
His art spans Armenia, Estonia, Europe, the U.S.A., and the U.K. His unique perspective on Venetian Art is a vibrant cultural tapestry that you can immerse yourself in. We invite you to explore Norik’s paintings and witness his artistic journey that spans decades of hard work and dedication.
