Malazonia Nodar

Nodar Malazonia’s creations include the fields of painting and drawing (book design, poster, caricature, illustration), graphic design, and computer graphics. He designed Georgian bonistika (Coupon, Gel, Georgian Tetri), and documents (passport, driver’s license, ID card, and voucher) together with Mamia Malazonia. The role of Nodar Malazonia in the development of the Georgian poster is distinguished. At the end of the 1950s, radical changes took place in the history of the Georgian advertising poster. These changes were conditioned by the highly artistic posters created for the Decade of Georgian Art and Literature in Moscow in 1958. Nodar Malazonia was one of the authors of the changes. He made his mark on the history of the Georgian poster in the 1970s and 1980s. He created numerous posters on various topics intended for international symposiums on Georgian art or Georgian art exhibitions abroad. The Borjomi water advertising poster and many more were created by him. Nodar Malazonia used photographic techniques in advertising besides artistic means. He also experimented with Georgian caricature – from 1958, he was the main artist of the magazine “Niangi” (Crocodile). The artist has
been participating in group and solo exhibitions since 1956. In spring 1985, a solo exhibition of his works was held in Vilnius. Malazonia has been awarded many times (1957, 1960, 1961, 1964, 1966, 1972, 1974, 1978). He is the Honored Artist of Georgia
(1965); People’s Artist of Georgia (1983); Member of the Union of Georgian Artists (1956); and General Director of Advertising- Publishing Firm “Banepisi”.
