Biography


The artist’s philosophy has been expressed in a Biblical sentence.

Childlike sincerity, expressiveness of form and festive riot of colour in combination with beauty and flexibility of lines form the language, which the artist speaks with an audience. However, do not jump to conclusions. Simplicity of his subjects is deceptive. Un childlike wisdom is behind them. That fact that none of his works can be interpreted unambiguously, might be attributed to the artist’s mystery.

This gives rise to the assumption that all fancies of his imagination are a different expression of love, while conventionality is a technique achieved through deep suffering, which only emphasises a thought included into a painting. Yes, he has many naive observations, but is not it them that prove a bright artistic individuality
…The artist believes childhood to be an amazing period of life. He admitted that he would like to stay there forever. However, unfortunately, it is impossible in the real world. Zura'’s attractive, decorative paintings, subjects full of good humour become a magical door that the author opens slightly, inviting us to the world of childhood and fairy-tale magic. At the exhibition, one of the visitors wrote in the guestbook: ?You can tell about him that his art expressed brilliantly the spiritual wealth, and his abilities reflected splendidly this spirit?.

Nothing could be said against that. Private collectors from the USA, Germany, Italy, Poland, Russia, France, Ukraine, England, and Holland buy works of Zurab Martiashvili.
