I saw Nana Tsintsadze’s solo exhibition at Tbilisi History Museum in February. The power and quality of the works she created during her entire creative life, and at the same time, the lack of works in printing techniques in contemporary art have become the first impulse for today’s exhibition. It should be noted that Nana Tsintsadze's and Giorgi Tsereteli’s family have played a significant role in the development of many artists. They both have been working as teachers for many years.
The exhibition presents works in printing techniques by Nana Tsintsadze, Gogi Tsereteli and their students from different generations.
Nana Tsintsadze and Gogi Tsereteli are distinctive representatives of Georgian graphic art. They started working at the beginning of the 1970s and were students of Sergo Kobuladze and Lado Grigolia.
Gogi Tsereteli is actively working as a book designer and had been artistic editor of the magazine “Tsiiskari” for many years. You can always recognize books designed by Tsereteli because of their simplicity and characteristic fonts. His works are characterized by laconism and "silver" graphics. The printing technique that he uses the most is lithography.
Nana Tsintsadze's works are mostly done in watercolor and etching. Her compositions are characterized by mystical calmness, and her characters show mythological strength and energy.
Eka Oragvelidze graduated from Art Academy, faculty of Easel Graphics in 2001. Since then, she has participated in many international and local exhibitions. A reoccurring theme in her works is her motherland Guria.
Pridon Lobjanidze graduated from Easel Graphics faculty at the Art Academy in 1995. He is currently working at the National Museum of Georgia as head of conservation and restoration.
Since graduating from the Art Academy in 2013, Giorgi Gatserelia, Leila Grigolia, Irakli Toklikishvili and Mirian Tchankvetadze are working together as a group.
