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.

ARTWORKS AND BIO

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.

 

Levan Lagidze’s 2018 London solo show, "Levan Lagidze: Bach Exercises", showed the only works available on the primary market by this great artist. We are proud that this sold-out show brought excitement and acclaim resonating in both England and Georgia.
