(1 / 21) Next
Irakli Chikovani, a new emerging talent with his distinguished vision and style has appeared on the stage of Georgian world of art. The painter’s artworks are very diverse, dynamic, interesting and colorful. Irakli has already had several personal exhibitions as well as took part in group exhibitions. Among his expositions one of the most appealing and important was when the artist's artworks on jazz theme were exposed at Rustaveli Theatre on April 30, 2015 on the International Jazz Day celebrated all over the world.

Although Irakli creates entirely different paintings on various themes, his lively series on jazz music and musicians has attracted our interest most of all, since he is the only Georgian painter who has dedicated so many works to this theme so far.

As the young painter says, he loves jazz music and everything that is connected to it. He has drawn his inspiration from the vintage black and white photos of musicians as well as seen many movies about jazz. Besides his jazz paintings Irakli is notable for his artworks of vivid landscapes, series of Tbilisi’s landmarks and cultural buildings as well as ink drawings. His grunge and quick brush strokes together with expressive palette gives the impression that the subjects in his paintings are constantly moving.

When talking to Georgian Journal Irakli told us that he started drawing at the age of 7. The teacher at school was the first who discovered that the kid possessed such talent and told him to pursue painting seriously. Irakli has studied at Tbilisi Iakob Nikoladze Art College , in 2004 he enrolled at the Tbilisi State Academy of Arts and in 2010 he earned the masters degree .”It is hard to express through words those unforgettable four years spent at the academy. We, students had total freedom and our lecturers did their best to help us find our own style and individual vision. We worked very hard every day, starting from 9 am ending late at night that eventually turned out very fruitful and gave considerable result personally to me. That’s why I am extremely grateful to my teachers and especially to my lecturer Gogi Lazarashvili who plaid significant role in my career as a painter”, said
the artist in the interview with Georgian Journal.

At present, Irakli is actively involved in many art projects and works at the studio together with his friend artist Irakli Kunchulia. The studio gallery is located at Abo Tbileli Street #1 in Tbilisi and is always open to its visitors and art enthusiasts.
