About Arman Nur : Nur's experimental spirit makes possible daring combinations, he might apply wood, tortoise shell, tail hair of the African elephant or a whisker of a whale to objects made of gold and silver. Nur performs with such grace and harmony that the beholder gets convinced that nature itself has created this perfection.
Minor plastic art has a special place in Nur's creative activities. Nur is a founder of a number of trends and styles, such as animated sculpture, dialogical psycho-realistic sculpture, sculptural composition with electronic content and conceptual jewelry. Nur's hallmark is that he never repeats himself, his every creation is unique and an absolute exclusive one of a kind.
STATEMENT OF ART:
I`m Arman Nur, a native of Yerevan and contemporary Armenian painter, sculptor, designer and jeweller. I have been credited with pioneering the genre of animated sculpture and a use of spectral gold in jewellery, among my other contributions in the field. I currently serve as the founder and director of Nur Design, a creative studio in Armenia known for its innovative jewellery art. I`m learning from the nature where all materials exist in full peace and harmony. I`m just attempting to recreate what the nature created long before. It seems that my creations live in their own reality and, therefore, they have their own philosophy. I combine different materials, such as turtle shell, gold, leather, wool, feather, ammonite, etc. in one art piece. My hallmark is that I never repeat myself. My every creation is unique and is an absolute exclusive one-of-a-kind. Many world celebrities are the proud owners of the works with the stamp Nur.
