About Kohar

Kohar Kevorkian is an Armenian-Ethiopian artist and the founder of “Final Touch PLC”. She specializes in creating arts and artifacts using the most creative, stylish and unprecedented techniques.

Kohar’s unique art ranges from passionate paintings to 3D wall pieces, channelling what she sees into what she displays. She ventures in various art forms such as home furnishings and accent pieces like wooden sculptures, mirrors, candle holders, pottery, leather cushions, leather bags, different lighting designs and tables thus conveying emotion, feeling, energy, feminism, colour and the importance of function.

Being artistically groundbreaking, Kohar’s products are created using the most environmentally sustainable means. Sold under the brand name “Kork Tavity” (carpet and rugs) and “Si-Bago” (bags), her carpets and bags are handmade using recycled and discarded leather and jute. The workmanship blends traditional and modern techniques to produce contemporary and high-quality products.

Her signature piece of art is the classic African Comb or “Mido,” which can be found with various private and public collectors.

The Background

Kohar’s mother is a dress-maker and an enormous source of motivation for her. She used to see her making patterns and be challenged to seek, invent and express herself. Thus, from very young age, art has become a nice path to finding where her authentic self feels the most free, alive and unburdened.

After receiving her degree from the Addis Ababa School of Fine Arts from 1997 to 1999, Kohar started painting and have never stopped since.

For building on her existing knowledge and techniques, she attended pottery making course in Armenia the years 2008-2009 under the supervision of Mr. Samvel Baghdasaryan Director of National Center of Aesthetics of Department of Fine Arts Dean of Armenian Open University. This thoughtful and artistic activity has become a striking way to open up her mind and make her soul grow.
