Tamaz Varvaridze is the artist representing a group of clearly individual Georgian creative minds from the 70s of
the 20th century. He is a well-known poster artist and the founder of the Georgian contemporary graphic school. The formal quest for conceptualism, characterized by the aesthetic organization of space in the composition, has been the artist’s primary principle since the 1970s. Despite the autonomy of details, he manages to unite them using abstract inter-connections. The artist creates an internal system that determines the rational movement on an unreal, generalized, less coloured surface built on the contrast of black and white with the maximum economy of visual elements.
The artist’s past life, work, and art are all part of the entire artistic gesture that plays a big role in understanding contemporary Georgian culture.
