Rusudan Khizanishvili lives and works in Tbilisi, Georgia. She was born in 1979 and received two BFAs in Painting, one from the J. Nikoladze Art School and the other from the Tbilisi State Academy of Arts. After graduating from the latter, Rusudan continued her studies to complete her MA in Media in 2005.
For Rusudan, a blank canvas is an escape road or intradimensional portal to the new world created by her imagination. This world is populated by strong women who carry their social burden day in and day out, all while retaining their archetypal allure. Rusudan also frequently includes animals that serve as symbolic guides between cultures and identities. Her confident use of colour, combined with a palpable and often sensuous handling of oil paint, demonstrates a maturity that has attracted many galleries and private residences across the world. In 2015 ten of her works were purchased by the Georgian National Museum of History and Culture as part of the Georgian national heritage collection.
Rusudan’s works are in multiple private collections in Europe and the US.
