Otar Imerlishvili: On his Childhood and on his City

Otar Imerlishvili

“I would say that my main inspiration is the set of stories from my own life – my childhood and the everyday being of my city, Tbilisi,” says the artist. “Also the countries which I have visited and basically experiences that I have gained with people and relationships throughout my life. As for the influences, people ask me this question all the time and compare my work with various artists, however I don’t see my work as such. But I can name my favourite artists who have had an impact on my personal belief in art: Johannes Vermeer, Bruegel, van Gogh.”

Otar Imerlishvili attended the Nikoladze Art College of Tbilisi and later, the Tbilisi State Academy of Art, one of the oldest universities in the Caucasus. His work has been exhibited abroad in places like Edinburgh, Venice and Frankfurt.
