Akhalkatsishvili, Vakhtang (Tato)

Vakhtang (Tato) Akhalkatsishvili– painter, was born in Tbilisi in 1979.

In 2004 he established Figurative Art Studio art group. Since 2005 he has been a member of the Georgian Artists’ Union. He has exhibited his works in Georgia, Italy, France, Germany, France, the Netherlands and Japan. His personal exhibitions were held in Georgia and Japan. The artist’s own statement reveals his creative work in the best way:
«surreal moments, uncertainty, pain, loneliness, haunt of the past feelings, genetically accumulated experiences, search of transcendental, hope of mysterious future, subconscious childhood emotions, changes and empathy - these are indelible components of human life I transform into metaphors and try to visualize them in different materials.
The landscape - a constant element of my works - serves as a miseenscene for revealing one’s mysterious life.
I want to capture the fine line between blurring memories and remembrance,between recent experiences and the information kept in our sub-consciousness.I want to explore the very second the mind stands between today and tomorrow, present and future, dream and awakening, reality and imagination... often think that very moment may not even exist.»
