Many of Berkuljian’s painting are housed in the Art Museum of Montenegro in Cetinje. Other works are part of private collections around the world. His earlier works are notably more traditional portraits and landscape paintings, depicting scenes from his country. Berkuljan’s later work is notably more abstract, experimenting with loose brush strokes, geometry and textured application of paint.

Berkuljian generally painted with oil paint on canvas, board or wood. In addition to his completed paintings he made a number of pencil and pastel sketches.
