  • Biography
    Spreading my time between UK, Prague and Georgia, I enjoy painting everything that catches my eye and imagination from abstract landscapes, places, streets, people, simple still life to female forms. I think, therefore my art reflects my mood, spontaneous outpouring of emotions and philosophical approach.  

    Although my philosophy of life is harmony, purity, deep reflection, beauty, contemplation, reserve and simplicity of existence, I tend to exaggerate rather than simply describe and force a viewer to concentrate his or her attention on the main object, not being distracted by small details and long descriptions. 

    I often apply thick paint straight onto the painting surface using so called 'impasto' technique that compliments painting wet-on-wet or alla prima, which means 'in one go'. Using high-quality oil paints, a palette knife and brushes I create thickly textured paintings that are rich in colour and depth. 

    During my artistic career I have exhibited around the globe. My works are in the public museums in Georgia, Armenia and Russia and many private collections throughout the world. I love to donate paintings to the different charities. 

    My "Mini Bristol" series oil on paper/board paintings and prints are available at the gallery Room 212 in Bristol (UK).

    Event: Unity in Diversity

    Dates: Dec. 10, 2018 - Dec. 14, 2018

    Venue: The Vestibules, Bristol, College Green, Bristol BS1 5TR

    The idea behind this exhibition is to celebrate a friendship between Bristol in UK and Tbilisi in Georgia by invoking the concept of “unity without uniformity and diversity without fragmentation”. The exhibition was shown in Tbilisi History Museum Karvasla first and then moved to Bristol.

    Event: Unity in Diversity

    Dates: Sept. 19, 2018 - Oct. 4, 2018

    Venue: Tbilisi History Museum Karvasla, Sioni Str.8, Tbilisi, Georgia

    Bristol Tbilisi Association (BTA) is celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of the link between Bristol and Tbilisi in 2018. The cities were twinned in 1988 when Georgia was still part of the Soviet Union. The idea behind this exhibition is to celebrate a friendship, international connection, cultural diversity, self expression, innovation and traditions by invoking the concept of “unity without uniformity and diversity without fragmentation”. The exhibition curators have endeavour to bring together Georgian and British artists that have been featured in art exhibitions and festivals in Tbilisi and Bristol during the last 30 years, as well as including other established and emerging talents from both cities. The exhibition explores ways to unlock the potential generated by combining very heterogeneous artworks composed from different media and materials, including photographs, video installation, sculptures and painting.
