Vatia Davitashvili was born in Telavi. He attended Kyiv Aviation University and befriended Sergo Parajanov, a film director who was living in Kyiv at the time. During this time, he developed an interest in art. He returned to Tbilisi after meeting with representatives of Soviet unauthorized art at Parajanov’s and began working in Avto Varazi’s workshop. Vatia Davitashvili developed into a rebellious and free man. At first glance, Davitashvili’s uniquely personal artistic world appears to be comprised of naive, vibrant, and overloaded still lifes or landscapes.
