Akhalkatsishvili Tato

Tato Akhalkatsishvili creates installations, objects, assemblages and video art along with paintings. Akhlakatsishvili belongs to the generation of Georgian artists who were introduced to the viewer in the early 2000s. The young artists of the art group “Figurative Art Studio,” established in 2004, focused on comprehending the complex socio-cultural themes of their time and addressed the problem of collective memory through several projects. Tato Akhalkatsishvili, also a member of this group, studied the defining trends of modern painting with his fellows and worked on the Georgian version of “New Figurativeness.” Later in his works, he experimented with the multimedia installation format, including objects, video art, assemblages, and photographic fragments into pictorial compositions. Tato Akhalkatsishvili considered the landscape as a central part of his painting from the beginning of his career. The enigmatic landscape has evolved over time as a result of various technological and conceptual experiments. His paintings have the artistic quality that characterizes internationally recognized art, and they are an important part of Georgia’s current artistic processes. The basic artistic vision that unites his works created in different periods is eccentric and sensitive, the artist’s imagination is rich and diverse. Tato Akhalkatsishvili has participated in a number of group exhibitions in Georgia and abroad, and his solo shows are always distinguished for their exposition accuracy, conceptual solidity, and impressive visual language.
