“Let them draw as much as they can, just let them draw.” – Avetis Krtikashyan
In life, Avo and art were inseparable. His clothes were perpetually splashed with paint. His brushes and paint tubes filled every nook of his art studio. Everywhere he went, he carried with him a deep urgency that pulled him back to his canvases.
It is the wish of the Krtikashyan family to remember Avo’s passion and preserve his legacy for many years to come.
We kindly ask that instead of flowers, you donate to the Babajanyan Art Academy, a youth school in Glendale where students will carry forward Avo’s devotion to art by holding an annual event in his name. Each August, close to the day of Avo’s passing, the Babajanyan Art Academy will organize ‘Painting with Avo’, an event where family, friends and artists will gather to celebrate Avo by doing what he most loved: drawing, painting and creating.
If you wish to contribute to this cause, please make a donation by using Venmo or Zelle. We are sincerely grateful for the love and respect you have shown Avo, our beloved father, husband, grandfather and brother.
