Sculptures with surrealistic overtones that explore the multiple facets of the human condition and tap into the depth of the human psyche.
The artist is of Armenian descent, born in Syria and lives in Montreal.
He had a passion for arts ever since his childhood. At a very young age, he attended The Saryan Academy of Art in Aleppo, Syria. While growing up, Megerditch had to choose his future career. Having chosen to pursue a career in medicine, his devotion to art became dormant for a while.
After establishing himself in Montreal and having a busy practice, M. Tarakdjian restarted his artistic ventures and improved his skills in sculpting under the guidance of renowned contemporary sculptor Arto Tchakmakchian.
He was represented by an art gallery in Montreal for few years, which made his sculptures sought after by collectors overseas. Tarakdjian’s works have also been produced in Armenia during his stays there and been placed in many institutions of the Armenian capital.
As a physician, Megerditch Tarakdjian believes in the healing power of art.
