Born in Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia, in 1952, Avtandil Makharoblidze graduated from the Tbilisi Academy of Art in 1975. His emotional and evocative oil and mixed media paintings have received wide exposure at numerous regional and national exhibitions in the United States, the former Soviet Union and across Europe.
While studying under world famous artist Guram Kutateladze, he became the master's favorite student for having acquired a feeling for the inner mood and emotion of the subject from his teacher. Deeply involved in teaching, Avtandil has passed on his teachings to many now famous artists in his homeland.
Avtandil is an equally accomplished painter (religious art, sculpture, monumental representation, and much more) and graphic artist (working both in theater and motion pictures). He worked as a theater set designer for the State Marionette Theatre of Georgia and, in 1989, received with his wife Ketevan, first prize for stage design at the International Theater Festival in Hungary. He is an accomplished master of motion picture animation working as head designer for such films as "Family" and "Waiting," produced in Georgia; he also served as a poster designer for a film distribution company.
The artistic style of Avtandil's paintings is Impressionist Abstract. He is therefore able to bring about a feeling of light and harmony that is both poetic and aesthetic. Avtandil shows the human being as always beautiful…a harmonious entity that realizes the truth of its inner reality.
Some notable collectors of Avtandil's original paintings are the United States Ambassador to Georgia, the Governor of the Republic of Adjaria, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the Russian Federation, the Minister of Internal Affairs of Georgia, and the President of the International Lyons Club. At present, Avtadil continues his work as an artist and teacher at this studio in Tbilisi.
