Garri Dadyan is a National Master Artist of the Soviet Union and a world-class master of repousse metal works. In 1993 he was named a member of the UNESCO International Federation of Artists in recognition of his superior artistry.
"The fine repousse images of Melic Dadayan are part of a great tradition of art of the Eastern churches reaching back into the Middle Ages from Northwest Russia to as far Southeast as Armenia. In a time when contemporary Soviet artists have been vying with each other in ever more modern expressions, it is refreshing to see an old art-form so beautifully revived." Professor Dr. Geza von Habsburg, Art Historian
