Japaridze, Nick

ARTWORKS

Born in 1971 in Tblisi, Georgis, Nick Japaridze learnt painting with a group of famous artists in 1985 and between 1989 and 1994 he studied Fine Arts at Tbilisi State Academy. Nick Japaridze’s work is a combination of traditional Georgian murals, Asian decor and a medieval painting technique. Nick shows his emotions, moods and dreams through the symbolic language of his paintings. The artist gets inspiration by listening to meditation music while working. All the details of these works have a symbolic meaning and the characters created by Nick are variations of his moods.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

 My art is what I feel and how I perceive the universe

“The creation of a work of art, its perception and understanding are two highly complex acts of the human spirit. Oil painting exists since thousands of years. My conception of painting is based on this old traditional craftsmanship, large knowledge about the technique of the old masters, combined with high fantasy. I carry my subconscious visions, dreams, feelings and intellectual approach into art. Therefore my paintings are full of symbolism, mysticism, allegories and a great mystery.”
