Mamuka (Dideba) Didebashvili
(b. 1968, Tbilisi, Georgia)
Deeply immersed and connected to the Old Masters, Dideba feels his hand guided by them. He creates magical worlds populated by nuanced and mystical characters, places, and times. Dideba’s kind and slightly surreal depiction of human traits draws upon ancient Georgian philosophy and traditions. His abstract compositions are expressive, deep, and mysterious. Rendered in exquisite Renaissance imprimatura technique, his paintings are imbued with an inner glow.
