Tamara Lortkipanidze (b.1989) is a young artist living in Barcelona. She studied at the faculty of Multimedia Design, Tbilisi State Academy of the Fine Arts, and experimented a lot in different media before finding her visual language in painting.
Tamara’s canvases have a baroque quality to them. The richness of colour, level of refinement, perfection when it comes to the surfaces, meticulous depictions, familiar compositional solutions... yet, the resulting works are so of their moment, talking about the world around, often depicting actual people – friends and acquaintances of Tamara. And indeed, it is her immediate surroundings that inspire the artist the most, be it trendy fashion designs, stylish tattoos and piercings, socio-political realities or the taboos we only just gained courage to talk about.
