Robert Kondakhsazov, a native of Tbilisi, embarked on his artistic journey after completing his education, enrolling in the painting faculty of the Tbilisi State Academy of Arts. Under the mentorship of esteemed instructors V. Shukhaev and S. Kobuladze, he meticulously honed his painting skills. Having successfully completed his studies in 1969, Kondakhsazov diversified his career into interior design, book graphics, and scenography.
Recognition for his exceptional contributions came in 1973, when Robert Kondakhsazov was bestowed with a diploma by the Ministry of Culture of the USSR and the All-Russian Theatre Society. This accolade was in acknowledgement of his outstanding scenography work at the Georgian Puppet Theatre. Kondakhsazov’s debut in the realm of exhibitions commenced in 1964, and he maintained a consistent presence in the annual poster exhibitions at the State Picture Gallery of Georgia until 1975. A pivotal moment in his artistic trajectory occurred in 1987 with a retrospective exhibition of Georgian art. Subsequently, 1989 marked the inauguration of the artist’s first solo exhibition in Tbilisi, followed by two more exhibitions in 2000 and 2003. In the late 1990s, Kondakhsazov underwent a transformative shift in his artistic style, embracing a black-and-white palette and placing emphasis on a structural reinterpretation of primitive forms.
Bestowed with the title of Honoured Artist of Georgia, Kondakhsazov’s prolific output exceeded 1,000 works. These creations find homes in the Shalva Amiranashvili Museum of Fine Arts in Georgia and various private collections across the globe, including those in Georgia, Great Britain, the USA, France, Belgium, Holland, Israel, Russia, Armenia, Australia, and other countries.
