Mamikon Khatchikian -. He was born in the 1990s in the United States, but spent most of his childhood in Krakow, Poland, where his passion for figure painting also began. He became fascinated with competition painting fairly quickly, after seeing the work of the 2003 Golden Demon winners (in those legendary White Dwarf additions). Jakob Rune Nielsen's Slayer Sword from the UK was the work that stuck in his mind and inspired him to paint ambitiously. He participated in several junior competitions, including YoungBloods at GD in Poland in 2008, but took to more serious painting in 2015-2016. Over the past few years he has managed to win several valuable awards, including the magnificent Mermaids from Contrast 2023 and 9 Golden Demons. The key things he values in figure painting are precision, "cleanliness" and storytelling.

The presentation will be held on June 1 at 1:30 pm in the room Szekspir.
