Born in Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia, in 1952, Avtandil Makharoblidze graduated from the Tbilisi Academy of Art in 1975. His emotional and evocative oil and mixed media paintings have received wide exposure at numerous regional and national exhibitions in the United States, the former Soviet Union and across Europe.
While studying under world famous artist Guram Kutateladze, he became the master’s favorite student for having acquired a feeling for the inner mood and emotion of the subject from his teacher. He is an accomplished master of motion picture animation, working as head designer for such films as “Family” and “Waiting,” produced in Georgia.
The artistic style of Avtandil’s paintings is Impressionist Abstract. He is therefore able to bring about a feeling of light and harmony that is both poetic and aesthetic.
