Haunted houses of old Tbilisi sketched by Ukrainian artist
Old houses of Tbilisi with neoclassicist facades built in Art Nouveau style represent one of the main symbolic features of the capital of Georgia. These unique houses with high ceilings, exquisite doors and intricate carved balconies that date back to 19t-20th centuries will captivate every passerby, especially tourists. Unfortunately, many of these unique buildings are on the brink
of collapse and need urgent restoration. Inspired by the old districts of Tbilisi a Ukrainian artist Anastasia Logvinenko, decided to sketch some of the loneliest houses left without care and organize an exhibition named Haunted Houses of Old Tbilisi. The artist has been based in Georgia since 2005 and working with her husband on Georgian cloisonné enamel for last eight years.geotv.ge

“I enjoy walking around the city. Tbilisi is a small city and while walking through the labyrinth of old streets you may discover something astonishing. I am captivated by the old houses; to me they are living beings whose each crack has its own story. It is a pity when you witness how the old house disappears and something new takes its place. As a result, many unique buildings of old Tbilisi have vanished and now they can be found only in the photos and paintings. Some of them can be seen in my artworks as well. I was raised in Kiev’s old house constructed in 1902. Now a five-star hotel occupies its place, yet its massive and solid walls have been preserved. Whenever I pay a visit to Kiev I always go and see the place where I spent my childhood years and I envisage the old beloved house that remained in mind”, - Author of the sketches says in the interview with Georgian Journal.

Those who are interested in Tbilisi’s old architecture can see the artworks by Anastasia Logvinenko at Art-cafe "Tiflis Brunch", Kote Apkhazi St (former Leselidze St) till May 10.

Here we present to you several artworks from the exhibition:
