Some materials are more resistant than others: they always say no. Armen Agop tells us how he discovered a material that suits him. He speaks about marble, basalt and granite and the pros and cons of working in a close artistic community like the one near Pietrasanta.
Armen works in the Giorgio Angeli Studio di Scultora D’Arte and it was here that Sarah spoke to him. He describes how he first came to Italy after being awarded the Rome Prize.
Armen exhibited at the Meem Gallery, a leading institution managing and promoting contemporary Arabic, north African and Iranian art.
