Eduard Yedigarian’s works are very rich, both from the drawing and color points of view. Yedigarian paints mainly sitting or lying women figures, whose symbolic meaning achieves an uncertain Oriental touch through the impact of golden and ultramarine colors. The works of Yedigarian have a very personal artistic language, where figurative elements intentionally mix with a dense combination of symbols, some of them copying the contour of human figures.
