The information of ancient Armenian culture enjoyed the input of the dwellers of the Armenian plateau and those ancient societies and countries with which the Armenians had long maintained contact. From ancient times, Armenians have cherished their artistic traditions, which reflect a unique culture and landscape. Aspects of everyday life are expressed in the most artistic fashion, in needlework, embellishments, carvings and design. At the earliest stages of its development ancient Armenian culture was singled out by its perceptiveness towards the cultural accomplishments of other peoples. This feature became most salient during the Hellenistic period. Being a culture of a higher order, Hellenism nevertheless didn't level out local Armenian culture, while leaving a deep impact on it. In material culture it is most apparent in architecture. The best known monument of the Hellenistic period in Armenia is the heathen temple Garny. The heathen religion was an important component of ancient Armenian culture; it underwent changes prior to the Christianity.

Architecture is one of the most interesting art forms in Armenia, as, for example, churches bear artistic illustrations in frescoes and relief. This art was originated more than 4500 years ago and had great influence on the origination and development of other countries architectures.

Sculpture is everywhere - in nearly every city, town, and village in Armenia.

Ancient sources have preserved information about the theater arts of Armenia. It is known that Tigran the second in his capital Tigranakert built a theater where Greek actors used to perform. His successor king Artavazd the second offered his royal palace in Artashat for theatrical performances. King Ardavazd the second is considered to be the first Armenian playwright, which entitled him to be cast in stone in a bas-relief of the pediment of the building of the Armenian Academic Drama Company in Yerevan.

Literature has always played a vital role in Armenia's cultural and national identity. Before the Armenian alphabet was developed in the 5th century, Armenian tales were passed down by oral tradition and written in foreign languages. Armenian manuscripts, beautifully illuminated with miniatures, combine Armenia's literary and illustrative traditions.

Artists from that period, such as the portrait painter HakobHovnatanian and the seascape artist Ivan Aivazovsky, continue to enjoy international reputation. In the 20th century, MartirosSaryan captured nature's essence in a new light, and Arshile Gorky greatly influenced a generation of young American artists in New York, while Carzou and Jansem found fame and fortune painting in France. A visit to SaryanPark will bring you in touch with today's Armenian artists.
