Valentin Podpomogov is not an immigrant. Most likely, he never will be. It's his pictures that are migrating to America: in Los Angeles alone, there are already more than a dozen of them. He lives in the city where he was born, Yerevan. His second name reveals that his father was Ukrainian. It's his mother who was Armenian - and therefore he considers himself to be a refined Armenian. People in Yerevan say, "Valushka? He's the salt of Armenia", for those who don't know Podpomogov, don't know Armenia. He is a true Armenian artist; every cell in his body has absorbed the country's essence, its culture, pride and pain.
