LEVAN LAGIDZE

Georgian, b. 1958

 
I don’t believe that in today’s world the function of art is to shock, provoke or surprise its viewers. Rather, it carries a mission for harmonious existence and happiness. A relationship with painting is a participation in this infinite happy game.
— Levan Lagidze

“One of Georgia’s greatest artists.” This is London
“A distinct artistic coup … Utterly ravishing.” Galleries Magazine
“A Living Legend.” Dante Magazine

 

 

THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAIL

This is especially true of Lagidze’s highly textured artworks, whose fragments are fascinating in their own right. Lagidze hides layers of colour to encourage deeper exploration and urges visitors to zoom in on details with their mobile phone cameras to discover the hidden universes within.

 

INSPIRATION

Lagidze’s abstractions share with us universal narratives such as landscape and urbanisation. Here is a glimpse of the incredible light and landscape of Georgia that inspire the colours and textures of his works.

 

Our November 2018 London show, "LEVAN LAGIDZE | Bach Exercises", showing the only works available on the primary market, was a sold-out show that brought excitement and acclaim resonating in both countries. Both Lagidze and his art are deep, vibrant, and irresistible. In 2019 we will take the show to New York, with a preview selection of new works. Stay tuned for more news.
