Anet Abnous is a Los Angeles-based Armenian-American artist whose vision is instituted on feminine beauty and empowerment. With female figures as her muse, she creates breathtaking and abstract imagery symbolising women’s liberation and rights.
Anet’s creations are deeply compelling and culturally diverse. Her ethnic and cultural designs contrast the vibrant colours and impeccable details of traditional costumes and styles intertwined with subdued darker shades to divulge an art of striking beauty. Her paintings are displayed in several private collections and have showcased in galleries in New York, Rhode Island, California, and Korea. Her creations and story have been published in magazines and news such as Asbury Park, Burbank Leader, NY Art Magazine, and others to name a few.

Anet’s Collection is Wearable, Tangible Art, which is the culmination of Anet’s dream to merge fine art, fashion, and storytelling through stylish tees, fashionable scarves, unisex accessories, complemented by her personal note cards imprinted with her work.
Artuyt was founded to make Armenian art known in Armenia and beyond. The beautiful and unique scarves will let you discover the exquisite artifacts of Armenian culture, from the medieval times to modern Abstractionism.
New collection of scarves inspired by Albert Hakobyan Albert Hakobyan’s simple lifestyle is the result of the merging of the reality and his intellectual reflection. His works are surely fed from deep poetic searches. The artist is sensitive to the surrounding world, which becomes a complete and inexhaustible source for his artistic meditations. Communication with Albert is easy. His appearance does not correspond to the inner fire, the vibration of his soul, and his subtle attitude toward the phenomena of life. However, he also announces: “I am the inventor of bicycle. I invented the bicycle – my bike. No matter that bicycle exists for several hundred years already, the most important is the pleasure of discovery. Nothing can be said about painting, painting cannot be separated from life. Drawing is a lifestyle, an existence. There is no difference between drawing, sleeping, loving or traveling. Every act requires great responsibility and superfluous freedom. Nothing is essential and nothing is secondary. Everything has equal value and is independent in its own way. A line is never a color border. Only ABSOLUTE exists and the only problem is not to restrict the ABSOLUTE.
