Creating - means being alive!
I am Nata Buachidze, an artist from Tbilisi, Georgia, born on 14.10.1967.
I grew up in a family of artists and architects, so being an artist is something very natural for me.
In 1990, I graduated from Tbilisi State Academy of Arts (Graphic design department), Tbilisi, Georgia.
In 1990-1991 I did a training course in Gray’s School of Art (Painting and photography course), Aberdeen, Scotland, UK.
I was working as a graphic designer from 1985, first as a freelance designer, then in 1991, in a design company ‘McElroy coats, Edinburg, Scotland, UK and from 1992 to 1996 in an Architectural & Design company, ‘Racurs’, Tbilisi, Georgia - I was painting and taking part in local and international exhibitions at the same time.
My artwork is in private collections in Georgia, the USA, the UK, Belgium, Germany, Czechia, France, Norway, Australia.
From 1993, I mainly devoted myself to painting, with occasional design commissions.
From 1999-present, I established an art school in Tbilisi and had a long pause in my own artistic life as I was mainly involved in the life of the studio and organizing grand exhibitions connected with my art studio.
Since 2017, I started intensively working as an artist again.
