His second book, About Time, a visual memoir around the clock, is a celebration of how we spend our fast & curious lives. After many years working with the french film industry — posters & opening credits — he is part of the Queer Palm jury at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival. And this year, he has created a special workshop at Tumo Studios embracing the Armenian paths of glory. Vahram is always keen on new adventures, ready to spice up an elegant take on Parisian culture with a touch of irony and affectionate eccentricity, the artist is preparing his third visual book about his very special relationship with Japan, due in 2022.
