Sekhniashvili Zurab

Zurab Sekhniashvili was an architect-restorer. He has restored more than 60 historical monuments, including Svetitskhoveli Cathedral and Davit-Gareja. Avto Varazi had a great influence on his formation as an artist. He started working with abstraction, which was a form of his protest. Nevertheless, Zurab Sekhniashvili’s art is considered more aesthetically than reformist-rebellious. Despite his active personal position, he sought most tranquillity in art. He said, “Perhaps time must pass… I do not think we can avoid anything, perhaps a more protective mechanism works, it is difficult to talk about open wounds…”
