After long studies of Armenian art and architecture, Daniel Varoujan Hejinian developed a style that best expresses the Armenian ecclesiastical art. The style of his religious paintings and murals is patterned after the manuscript illumination of the early Armenian Christian art typified by vivid colors, classic compositions, and freedom of movement. The artist's style closely adheres to iconographic and theological prescription.Varoujan has painted many religious murals and paintings in seven Armenian Churches throughout the United States.

Saints Vartanantz Armenian Apostolic Church, Chelmsford, MA;
St. Gregory the Enlightener Armenian Church in White Plains, New York;
Armenian Apostolic Church of the Holy Ascension, Trumbull, Connecticut;
Saint John the Baptist Armenian Apostolic Church, Greenfield, Wisconsin;
Saint Stephanos Armenian Apostolic Church, Elberon, New Jersey;
Our Savior Armenian Apostolic Church, Worcester, Massachusetts;
Holy Cross Armenian Catholic Church in Belmont, MA.

Saints Vartanantz Armenian Apostolic Church in Chelmsford, Massachusetts, was the first church to commission Varoujan's religious murals. Hejinian completed 46 murals covering the northern and southern walls of Saint Vartanantz Armenian Apostolic Church.

Varoujan has painted several public and corporate murals in Boston, such as the Newbury street and Causeway Street Murals. A 50'x50' five-story high mural, on the Causeway Street is the gateway to the historical North End; the murals at Fillippo's Restaurant in the North End; and Luccia's Restaurant, Winchester, MA.
