Yana Khachikyan is a talented self-taught artist who was born in Georgia and currently lives and works in Kiev, Ukraine. Yana creates stunning oil paintings on usual stones. Inspired by the beautiful nature of the Crimean seaside(where she spent her summer holidays), Khachikyan paints amazing landscapes and animals on the cold surface of the stone.
I started painting on stones two years ago. Now it is my passion. It’s something that I never get bored of. I can spend many hours painting some small details and I am enjoying it. For some reason I am mostly painting at nights. Sometimes I start painting in the evening and the next thing I notice around me, it’s the sunlight outside. Usually it takes me several hours up to a few days to finish one painting depending on the complexity of the picture.
