Mariam Arshaki Aslamazian (October 20, 1907, Bash-Shirak village, near Alexandropol – July 16, 2006, Moscow) was a Soviet painter, recognized as a People's Artist of the Armenian SSR (1965) and People's Artist of the Soviet Union (1990).
She was the sister of painter Yeranuhi Aslamazian. A large collection of their works is kept at the Aslamazian Sisters' Museum in their native Gyumri.
Aslamazian was the student of Stepan Aghajanian and Petrov-Vodkin. Her paintings evoke the dramatic, colorful themes of the period of her life.
While critics argue the relative strengths of her paintings, her exquisite ceramic plates are universally proclaimed masterpieces.
Mariam Aslamazian died in Moscow, and was buried in Yerevan’s Komitas Pantheon.
