A few words about your background
I’m a 33 year old painter and a State Academy of Fine Arts graduate. Moreover, i did my MA in Graphic design and am now working on my PhD. Currently, I’m residing in Georgia (country).
Let’s look back on your career
I have been painting since I was a student and participated in many domestic group exhibitions. Two of my solo shows – each consisting of nearly 30 pieces – took place in 2001 and 2003. At the moment I am working on a third one.
How would you classify your style?
I consider my style close to primitivism although I am not a huge fan of naming or categorizing art to styles.
What’s important to you?
In my practice I want my works to be received by the viewer for the ideas behind them, not only for aesthetic characteristics.
Your golden rule
I think if it is clear to the viewer what was intended to express, then there is no need for names and an explanation. If it is not clear, then let it be.
