Amazing Art

I am a fan of his movies and i didn't have any imagination of his art pieces. The museum is his house and the collages and art peices are wonderful.

We were unfamiliar with Parajanov's films or artwork but enjoyed an hour visiting this museum very much. No question the works are quirky and very unusual. One cannot find such art in many places so do include a visit if in Yerevan for sure.

Do find time to see the place. Sergei Paradganov is an Armenian-Georgian-Soviet Salvador Dali. He made films, was sent to prison, made installations. Really interesting place

Sergei Parajanov is one of the most original and critically-acclaimed filmmakers of the 20th century. His work reflected the ethnic diversity of the Caucasus where he was raised. Parajanov was a genius with more than talent... More

It's an unusual museum. Parajanov is very popular there. The museum is small though and it houses different things. It's just weird that you need to pay an additional 700 Dram so they can allow you to take pictures. It's so small that you can finish the two floors in probably 10 to 15 minutes, but overall it's a good... More

Parajanov's forced exile from the world of films just made him creative in a different way. Connoisseurs of Dada and Surrealism may find this work a little naive, but there was certainly passion and fire behind these creative acts. When one understands Parajanov used collage as a medium to document cinematic ideas it makes rather more sense. Well worth the... More
