Art Sevada is a bona fide Renaissance man, recognized for his many talents and pioneering endeavors. Today, as the CEO of GRIGOCORP and President of Sevada Productions, both based in Los Angeles, he continues to build on a diverse body of work, as an award-winning artist and entrepreneur.
Art Sevada was born in 1972 into a family of renowned artists, in the city of Abovyan, Kotayk Region, Armenia. Inspiration was all around him as he grew up in a household steeped in creativity. By the time he graduated from high school, Art had already mastered several musical instruments, and cultivated a profound appreciation for visual arts and esthetics.
After he and his family moved to Los Angeles in 1990, Art studied music composition and visual arts at California State University, Northridge. His formal training would propel him into a flurry of creative work in the ensuing years.
Between 1995 and 2000, Art released three albums of original music, including "Palpitation of Soul," "Years of Solitude," and "Disconnected." Apart from composing the lush, melodically-driven material, he had also played all of the instruments and arranged the music. All three recordings have garnered critical praise.
In the late 1990s, Art established Sevada Productions, a firm specializing in a broad range of creative work, from graphic and web design to television commercials and software development. Sevada Productions continues to grow, and is widely recognized for landmark projects that push the envelope in terms of content and design alike.
Throughout the 2000s, Art also pursued his passion for filmmaking, by writing, directing, and producing a series of intensely personal films that are also noted for their universal appeal. His credits include his trilogy, comprising "As a Beginning," "Mikosh," and "The Rope," as well as "Three Colors in Black and White" - all of which have received critical acclaim in Europe, the United States, and elsewhere.
In 2015, Art founded GRIGOCORP, a consortium of entertainment and consumer-product companies, with the goal of developing and marketing a diverse range of inventions. Today, cutting-edge products being made or developed by various GRIGOCORP enterprises range from eyewear, beverage products, and electric cars to next-generation apps and devices including SFNX, the world's first AI psychologist.
Era natural spring and mineral waters are products of nature. We never add things for taste or enhance with extras. Era water starts as rain and snow in the peaks of the Armenian mountains which is then deposited on our watershed, a unique geological landscape surrounded by mountains and glaciers. Era water travels on a 17 year journey to the source through layers of glacial rocks which naturally protect the water from outside pollution and enrich it with naturally occurring electrolytes and minerals, which provide the distinctive, crisp taste.
Era water emerges at the Aragats mountains region in small Armenian town of Aparan.
The discovery of Era natural spring water dates back to 1879, when a local doctor, Ishkhan Kalentz, was out for fresh air and drank from a local spring on the land owned by a local nobleman Sam Sevada. The doctor loved the ‘light and easily drinkable’ taste and decided to drink the water regularly.
Word spread so doctor Kalentz fenced off his spring and began selling bottles of this special water to the local community.
In 1903, the first thermal spa opened, followed in 1911 by the first bottling facility. With thermal spas very much in vogue, the town became a fashionable destination drawing in visitors from all around Armenia and beyond.
Ever since, Era natural spring and mineral waters have become an icon of health and grown in popularity. Today we are one of the leading premium spring and mineral waters worldwide* and sold in 143 different countries!
