A NEW STORY SOMEWHERE DEEP INSIDE
The interest to Emzari Kiknavelidze’s work can be largely explained by unusual style and genre orientation of his paintings. The artist brings to the contemporary art entirely new pictorial variations. Of course, the origins of his art have national roots: “I think that such paintings can only be made in Odesa. Everything that surrounds you here helps to do it: atmosphere, aura... It’s not like I sit down and make up a new story but something catches my eye and stays with me somewhere deep inside. It constantly lives there, transforms, and ripens. Then, with time, it comes out, often in a quite modified form. And, apparently, this process of modification is called creativity.”
Emzari Kiknavelidze is a painter and sculptor born in Zestafon, Georgia. He lives in Odessa, Ukraine.
