But, the idea and the purpose of painting is to express the attitude towards the universe and human beings using of art. Inevitably, the expressed energy is accumulated in a work and affects the audience. In my opinion, poetry as a means of aesthetic perception stands in the highest position among other fields of art. Consequently, that painting is priceless and eternal where poetry is reached, the same can be said about music. And every artist should strive for this.” EDUCATION: 1983-1989 M.A. in Graphic Artist/Illustration, Diploma with Honors, the Tbilisi State Academy of Fine Arts, Georgia 1979-1983 B.A. in Teaching/Drawing, Diploma with Honors, The Nikoladze Art College, Tbilisi, Georgia
