The National Beijing Museum of Arts chose two paintings by Lebanese
(Armenian) artists Lena Kelekian and her husband Hagop Sulahian from
among tens of paintings submitted by artists around the world. The
two pieces will be included in the permanent collection of the museum
representing Lebanon at the Fourth International “Biennale Beijing”
2010 in China, the theme of which is “Environment Concern and Human
Existence”

After her return from China, Kelekian stated that her painting entitled
“Planet Earth, Our Only Home” had already won the Gold Medal and
the Olympic Torch for Arts in 2008 (prior to the Beijing Olympics);
her husband Hagop Sulahian’s painting is entitled “Time is Up”. Both
paintings were highly regarded and appreciated by the jury at the
Biennale Beijing 2010.

Kelekian and Sulahian are also exhibiting their paintings at the
“Ninth International Goyang Exhibition” in Korea in November.
