” The value of Nicogosian’s artwork comes from his power, the same power of a man that stood up with dignity and faith, over the years, both the communist terror and the Gulag’s atrocities, filling with color life sorrows.” Said the great artist and lifetime friend Paul Gherasim, during the vernissage of the important retrospective organized by Senso gallery in 2006. “This kind of exhibit, like the one from Senso Gallery, is meant to crown a lifetime work of this fighter and transform it into a model for all of us”.
