With finessing fingers, black aphotic wit and winged imagination, Gia Chikvaidze creates a wrenching view of life's aspects entirely his own. His scenes are worried with a saturating delight for the self-satirical gasconade of human posture and illuminated with an extraordinary skill for whimsical expression. Born in Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia in 1961, Chikvaidze found early guidance from the artists in his own family before studying graphics and book illustration at Tbilisi Academy of Art. Besides illustration and commissioned murals, he worked on set design for numerous theatrical and movie projects while exhibiting his work throughout Central and Eastern Europe, including expositions in Germany, Yugoslavia, Finland, Poland and Italy. He also pursued an interest in archeology on a number of expeditions in Georgia before moving to his current home in Los Angeles, California.

With deep primary hoes narratives are unveiled layers by layer until like a surreal "Alice in Wonderland" one has become immersed in the artists web of colour, imagination, and philosophy.
