Aghassi (Boghos Taslakian) was born in Lebanon
in 1964. He entered the field of art at a very early age. Blessed
with the innate gift, he began painting and sculpting at the
age of eleven.
In 1981, he started to attain formal training in fine arts,
as he enrolled at the “Art Academy of Armenia” taking
courses in painting.
In 1986, following a brief stay in Lebanon, Aghassi continued
his artistic education at the “Academia di Belle Arti
di Venezia” in Italy. He returned to Lebanon in 1996.
During the past years, Aghassi’s paintings belonged to
the absurd surrealist school, but his recent works are illustrations
of a successful touch of harmonic surrealism.
