IRAKLI MERELI

Artist in Focus - Irakli Mereli was born in Batumi in 1992. He graduated from Batumi Art School and began studying at the Tbilisi State Academy of Arts in 2010. In 2018,he continued his MFA studies at the Tbilisi State Academy of Arts, focusing on painting and graphics. "I WAS ABOUT TO PRAY" is the title of Irakli Mereli's solo exhibition, the main subject of which is poetry and the contemplation of one's soul in an observant manner. Reflecting on his own experience, the author has attempted to create a series of artworks that are metaphorical representations of a comprehensive rethinking. The artworks featured include portraits of gigantic, exaggerated faces, which are worn on a person’s back like the metaphors of unearthly, concealed and invisible matters. This sensation is further enhanced by a vibrant green pigment, which remains at the heart of the narrative and stands out more prominently in the ceramic figures. The host of the exhibition: Gallery 4710
