About the artist: Arty Iskandarian
Goldsmith Arty Iskandarian was born in Lebanon in 1972. His family has collected and played strings instruments for generations, and he began learning the violin at the age of six.
Due to the 1982 Lebanon War many musicians fled Lebanon, and as a result, Iskandarian was no longer able to receive violin lessons. Instead, he devoted his interest to violin making; experimenting with woods and varnishes, and exploring the differences in sound created by different production techniques. The expert knowledge that he acquired during this time has produced quite remarkable results in his instruments.
