Overview

Rusudan Khizanishvili was born in Tbilisi, Georgia.

Graduated from the J. Nikoladze Art School and later from Tbilisi State Academy of Art receiving two BFAs in Painting.

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 intra-dimensional 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.
