Rusudan Petviashvili had a special talent for painting since her childhood, and despite her youth, she found herself at the centre of intellectual and artistic attention. Just like in 1981, in St.Yorre, a press conference was held to discuss the phenomenon known as Rusudan Petviashvili’s paintings. Interest in her paintings, which are distinguished by a distinctive and original style, does not wane with age. Surreal characters are often depicted by the artist, and they occasionally represent celestial bodies. In her works, Titans appear from time to time, holding the entire world on their upper back. She depicts unified world in Indian ink or ink, then moves on to the narration of characters and their adventures; the line is continuous, and it is difficult to discern where she ends up in the knot of symbolic weaving. She became one of the artists who had the honour of illustrating “The Knight in the Panther’s Skin” at the age of 16 thanks to her rich imagination and refined drawing style. Petviashvili led a group of Georgian artists who had to create miniatures for the largest Gospel written in ancient Georgian script on parchment.
