Karlo Pachulia specializes in graphic techniques like etching and lithography. His preferred mediums are ink and pen, which he primarily employs for sketches. His works are perfect, emotional, and boldly created compositions that are the result of the artist’s skilful mastery of the material. The artist’s oeuvre covers a wide range of subjects, including views of old Tbilisi and scenes depicting human life. The artist’s painting style is bold, free, and appears to be spontaneous… You can perceive the city’s magic: the houses of old Tbilisi that are intimately connected to their inhabitants; the curious women and children peering out their balconies at their neighbours gathered in the inner yards. Each of the dozen books he has designed and illustrated is a visual representation of the book’s content.
