Varazi Avto

Avto Varazi became almost a legend among artists and intellectuals in the 1960s and 1970s. It was his human and creative advantage that fueled the environment in which the unofficial art of post-war nonconformism flourished. Therefore, most of the Georgian artists who created unofficial art were more or less dependent on him. Avto Varazi was uncompromising in life and art. He used to easily escape from the clichés. His art expressed not objects but connections between them, he sought not colors but the metaphor of color. Avto Varazi was not only a great artist but also a great psychologist. In his portrait art, he delves into the drama of human loneliness and its deep existence. He was one of those whose lives and creations were merged. Avto Varazi died in March 1977, and in May of the same year his exhibition was organized at the Museum of Modern Art in New York (MOMA), where Varazi’s famous work – “Bull’s Head” is housed.
