Zurab Martiashvili was born in Tbilisi, Georgia, in 1982, into the family of the artist Vakhtang Martiashvili. He attended the Geo Art School and graduated from the High School of the Arts in Tbilisi. Since 2005 he has been exhibiting professionally in Georgia and around the world. His paintings grace collections in New York, London, Holland, Germany, Russia, Poland, Israel, France and Ukraine.
The fantastical and expressive paintings of Zurab Martiashvili, a virtuoso Georgian portrait painter, combine a love of mankind and nostalgia for the stories of Jewish tradition. There is considerable humor in the faces of the array of classical figures that the artist portrays with skilled naiveté, humor that creates a look of empathy and vitality that captures the heart of the viewer.
