Artist Profile | Alina Gishyan
Alina Gishyan is an Armenian visual artist who has been living and working in Croatia for five years. She uses both of her cultural influences to create pieces that are certainly Croatian and also undeniably Armenian. Her avant-garde style of ceramics has attracted buyers from all over the world, including local buyers who have commissioned her work to be displayed as part of corporate collections.
Alina Gishyan comes from a distinguished Armenian family of ceramic artists; over the past sixteen years she has built up an enormous amount of experience and developed her own style of unique ceramic functional pottery. Her artistic mission is to create sustainable art through food safe materials that are functional and stylish.
Alina is constantly gaining exposure through exhibitions and art symposiums across the world. Her artwork has been collected all over the globe, from USA to Japan and from UAE to Russia. Alina frequently participates in art exhibitions and expositions around the world. She has many collectors who enjoy owning pieces of her art works, including those living in USA, Japan, UAE, Russia and in Europe. Besides participating in exhibitions she is organising art exhibitions in Croatia which are becoming increasingly popular year in year out.
