The exhibition ‘Zurab Nizharadze 90’ will take place at the Dimitri Shevardnadze National Gallery and will last until 20 May.
The exhibition will showcase paintings and graphic works from collections of GNM Shalva Amiranashvili Museum of Fine arts and GNM Dimitri Shevardnadze National Gallery, as well as from the private collections.
The event aims at portraying stages of Zurab Nizharadze’s work and the peculiar characteristics of the process.
Friends associated Zurab Nizharadze with Picasso because of different angles and artistic perspectives and special interest for colors and they came up with a nickname ‘Pico’.
Born in 1928, Nizharadze has been actively involved in exhibitions since 1955. He has held various exhibitions in Czech Republic, Russia, France, Germany, Georgia, etc.
Zurab Nizharadze’s works are one of the most distinguished and characterized by thematic, subjective or technical diversity.
The first stage of his creative work was inspired by poetry. His 60-70s’ paintings are more concrete with shapes, distinguished by the diversity of portraits.
Since the 80s, Zurab Nizharadze has been exploring body language, its beauty, harmonic rhythms of color and motion.
