Stream of Fire: New Art from Armenia is a 132-page beautifully illustrated exhibition catalogue with more than eighty colour reproductions of the works of leading post-Soviet Armenian artists. The catalogue, published in 1995, accompanied the Pharos Trust’s inaugural event – an art exhibition which took place within the context of European Cultural Month Nicosia, Cyprus in September/October 1995.  One of the first books on contemporary art from Armenia, the catalogue highlighted the country’s new and exciting artistic talent as it made its transition from Soviet rule.

Includes works by 13 artists including; Sarkis Hamalbashian, Ashod Bayandour, Marcos Grigorian , Armen Kevorkian, Arman Grigorian, Achot Achot

The accompanying text includes a critical essay by the President of the Pharos Trust, Garo Keheyan, an overview of twentieth-century art in Armenia by Nouritza Matossian (author of a biography on Arshile Gorky) entitled ‘Into the Sun - Armenian Art as Survival’, and a profile of each artist by award-winning British author, Philip Marsden.

This attractive catalogue, designed by Herman Lelie - a leading art book designer and printed by Mariogros Italy - would make an invaluable addition to any art collection, private library, university or reference library.
