  • Biography
     Jacob Jugashvili /Яков Джугашвили/იაკობ ჯუღაშვილი/ (the surname may also be spelled Djugashvili or Dzhugashvili in English). Born July 14th 1972 in Tbilisi, Georgia, USSR. Jacob completed his secondary education in Moscow and thereafter studied at Tbilisi State Academy of Fine Arts from 1992-1994. In 1997 he graduated from the Glasgow School of Art (Painting and Drawing) with a BA. Between 1997 and 2000 Jacob showed at various London venues: the Boundary Gallery, Lamont Gallery, Royal College of Art, London Art Fair, Georgia 2000 exhibition at Cork streets Gallery 27. In 1999 his works were shown at Batumi Art Museum (Batumi, Georgia). From 2000-2005 Jacob did almost no painting, working instead in IT business.  Jacob is currently actively involved in Russian public and political movements. His views on life and politics are usually a subject of hard public discussions and sometimes severe critiсism. As his ideas do not fit any particular traditional ideological stereotypes he is not welcomed by both sides of political spectrum: rights and lefts. From the interview with Jacob Jugashvili: "...QUESTION: A long interval spent in IT industry before you came back to art. How was the experience? ANSWER: Probably it may strike strange, but thanks to my days in the management of a small company, my understanding of the word "creativity" became much deeper. The matter is that creativity is an ability to accept non-standard, sometimes, the most unexpected decisions for achievement of goals. QUESTION: Do you think that paintings/ art should be political? ANSWER: By means of modern technology it is easy to manufacture images, paintings, art of any complexity and sizes, and use it for propaganda purposes, be political ones or other. Therefore painting must not “compete” with the technologies. The value of painting today consists in the fact that it is made by man, and man, as is known, characteristically make mistakes. Specifically, the skill of man, artist, to manage his errors in the process of his work, finding for this the most unexpected solutions which is not capable by a computer or technology, makes painting interesting and therefore, valuable. In the painting it is the most important thing. The more he fights with his errors and weaknesses, the more interesting and creative his work would become and stronger the effect of his work shall be on the world, on the imagination of the people. And this inevitably would lead to the generation of new ideas and thus influence and change people...." Full interview can be read here http://jugashvili.com/press/power_is_unfair.html
    Here are Jacobs' appearances in popular Russian TV talk-shows https://youtu.be/F3M0KXfOpnghttps://youtu.be/4FFmO9d23xo
    Here are few comments Jacob received from the collectors:
    1.
    I received Restless Sky IX from Jacob is a perfectly fitted wooden box - which completely protected the painting. I had regular emails from Jacob about the finished piece, its shipping and expected arrival date. All in all - this seller could not have been more helpful. And to add to the delight of the whole process - the painting when it arrived - was even more beautiful than I had expected. I will most definitely buy another from Jacob. Kind regards. Tracey.
    2. "...Jacob, of your "Dangerous Waters" series, this almost biblical rendering of "the fountains of the deep and the floodgates of heaven" (Genesis 8:2) seems the most terrifying... the brushwork is fabulous!...Joseph Levine Philadelphia, PA - United States."
