Canadian artist Armand Tatossian dies at 61

PanARMENIAN.Net - Canadian artist Armand Tatossian passed away in Montreal on Aug 23 at the age of 61, his sister announced, globaltvbc.com reports.

Mary Tatossian has cared for her brother since he suffered a stroke in 2007 that left him unable to paint.

Tatossian's works are displayed on the walls of the Musée du Quebec as well as art museums in Greece, Italy, Armenia and the United States. The National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa has also featured his paintings.

He was the youngest member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts when he was accepted as a member in 1973.

Born in Egypt, Tatossian was introduced to art by his grandfather and went on to study under French painter and lithographer Jean Carzou and painter Bernard Buffet. He also studied mural technique at the Carrarra Academy in Italy.

Tatossian mostly created abstracts, landscapes and still life paintings using oil on canvas. His distinctive style was dubbed "Tatossianisme."

Visitation is scheduled for Thursday, Aug 30 at Rideau Funeral Home in Dollar-Des Ormeaux followed by a funeral service Friday at St. Gregory the Illuminator Armenian Cathedral in Outremont.
