Born in 1960, in Yerevan, Armenia.
Garen's works do not distract one from modem rhythms. In his paintings everything is on the move like the favorite forms of Action Art artists and something always happens, goes on as in the compositions of old Flemish Masters.
Garen has never visited Van Gogh's homeland nor seen Jackson Pollack. Bat he is one of the rare individualities who born away from Holland and America is closely connected with the artistic heritage of these two countries.
Garen does nor promise the art lover serenity, peace of mind nor bliss. His path is that of movement, passion, energy and will power. And it implies freshness, full-flowing blood circulation, youth and flight to the unknown and far away worlds.
A person to whom these concepts are alien, however does not get in touch with these works of art in vain and those who are ready to tread unknown paths have found in the person of Garen a spiritual helmsman who infects everybody, even those who do not share his views with the beauty, freshness and freedom of the universe.
