About Art – Rusudan Petviashvili
Georgian artist Rusudan Petviashvili (Georgian: რუსუდან ფეტვიაშვილი) started to paint when she was one year and ten months old and held her first exhibition when she was six years old.
Born in Tbilisi in 1968, Rusudan graduated from the Tbilisi State Academy of Art and uses a unique one-touch technique (drawing performed without detaching from the sheet).
Her artworks can be seen at the National Museum of Art (Tbilisi), the National Museum of Adjara (Batumi) and the Museum of Arts (Kutaisi).
Rusudan’s art is also in the personal collections of famous politicians such as George Bush, Eduard Shevardnadze, Ilham Aliyev, and Margaret Thatcher.
Rusudan has illustrated many books, including The Georgian Folk Tales and The Knight in the Panther’s Skin by Shota Rustaveli (Moscow-Paris co-edition).
Rusudan was the head of the artists’ group who created miniatures for the largest handwritten Bible in the Old Georgian language, which is exhibited at Holy Trinity Cathedral of Tbilisi (Georgian: თბილისის წმინდა სამების საკათედრო ტაძარი).
The artist is listed in “2000 Famous Persons of XX Century”, a book published by the Cambridge Biographical Centre”.
