Marina Grigoryan was born in 1963 in Dushanbe, Russia.
Grigoryan attended art school from 1974 to 1978 before enrolling at the Art Academy in 1978 to study easel painting under the guidance of Professor Nogmat Khakimov, and Lyubov Kuzina, senior lecturer in the Drawing and Composition Department.
Upon her graduation in 1982, Grigoryan began her career as an artist by embarking on an ambitious ten year period of nearly non-stop participation in group and individual shows where she continued to honer her unique artistic talents. Her exposure to variety of experiences and people culminated in a desire to experience a complete “life makeover“, which she realized by immigrating to Israel in 1994.
Grigoriyan’s paintings practically glow with an infusion of light and an amazing use of color that blend together to create an ambiance of almost fairy-like magic. "Soothing“, "exciting“, "mysterious“, "vibrant“, and "alive“ are just some of the words that have been used to describe the artist’s work.
Today, Grigoryan has added sculpture and ceramics to her reproitare and continues to perform as a professional artist and has seen her work exhibited in Israel, America and Europe.
