Through fate, people have moved to different countries, including artists, for permanent residence. Vladimir Atanyan is one of them. In Armenia he was a well-known artist who created a number of wonderful works. Now he lives in the United States and in a very short period of time he continues to maintain his dignity and human quality without ever helping to build his own unique art world by creating exceptional works of art.

Vladimir Atanyan has found his truth in art in the value of his own pain and has taken away many corners of the world like his own cross, making it not only national, but universal.

"Color of Love" article "New Armenia"

September 23, 1995, page 7

Atanyan has created his world of art, the world that is warm and warm, the world that reminisces rare dreams from which you do not want to divorce.
Atanian's character, besides talent, is his infinite diligence. Perhaps this is the reason why he has perfectly shown himself in all aspects of fine arts. Atanian's wide range of interests and diversity of art are the sculpture

of the "Goran" monument at Moscow Cinema, the fountain-hall of the "Armenian lifestyle" fountain-decorating the cinema square.
