Eka Gadelia - Georgian painter..

Eka was born in 1983year in the country named that time the USSR..

Graduated the aesthetic - art school. Then became a student  of  Moscow State University of Culture and Arts.

From early childhood her hobbies were Art, Fine Art, Painting, Graphic arts. She was always drawing everywhere: at schoolbooks, notebooks, on the walls and wallpapers and etc. When she was a teenager, bombed the walls and many walls in the city were tagged by Eka's Graffiti.

Eka Gadelia is greatly affected by her native Georgian Culture. Particularly, by Pirosmani's Art (Niko Pirosmani 1862-1918years, Georgian painter of Primitivism). Most of Eka's work are painted in Folk-Art style. But if you want to characterize Eka's style, you can see, that she has mixed several styles: Primitivism, Naive art, Portrait, Graphics Art, Folk Art.

Paper & Pencils - these are Eka Gadelia's favorite instruments she works with.

Also, she's drawing oil painting on the walls (Fresco) and likes to work with wood (wooden art).

 

She has some groups of paintings:

"Project F" - the group of paintings with known people's faces: friends, natives and just nice people, the faces she liked.

"Popular Faces" - the group of paintings with popular people, the authors like. Actors from "The Sopranos", "Dr House", "2Pac" and others.. 

"The Saints" - the group of paintings with the icons and The Saints of Orthodox Christian Church.

"The War" - the paintings dedicated to tragic war in Abkhazia (the part of Georgian Republic separated in 1993 year) and also dedicated to several Caucasian peoples deportation in Stalin's period and other.

"My Pirosmani" - oil paintings on the wall. The authors own version of Pirosmani. 

"Fresco" - several oil paintings on the wall.

"Just works" - light, good mood portraits and other fun paintings.

"Matreshki" - mix of two cultures: russian matreshka painted in georgian folk art style.

"Easter Eggs" - nice painted wood eggs for Easter Day.  

 

Last year Eka has the first personal exhibition in Moscow, Russia. “The Faces by Eka Gadelia”  has no promotion at all, except the news at its Facebook and web-pages. Despite of so meager financial budget of  Eka’s exhibition  there were a lot of people, as well as from museums and art-magazines. Most of them had cultural shock from Eka’s paintings. “Their eyes are alive” – said the art from Tret’akov Gallery.

Also, a few months ago Eka has visited Zurab Tsereteli’s master-class, where she was marked by Master as a young good and upcoming painter and very simple and modest girl. Mr Tsereteli looked through the catalogue with Eka’s paintings and was really excited.
