Georgia: The Dimitri Shevardnadze National Gallery in Tbilisi hosts a solo exhibition of Beka Sakvarelidze, a contemporary Georgian painter and lecturer at the Tbilisi State Academy of Arts. The exhibition “Someone is Stirring” opened on December 20, 2023 and will run until January 29, 2024.

The exhibition presents works made by the artist in recent years with various techniques and materials, such as oil, acrylic, collage, and mixed media. Some artworks were never shown to the public, as they were only known to private collectors. Others were created for this exhibition, reflecting the artist’s creative mood and vision.

Beka Sakvarelidze is a prominent figure in the Georgian art scene who has actively participated in international exhibitions and auctions in Georgia and abroad. 

He graduated with a master’s degree in painting from the Faculty of Fine Arts at the Tbilisi State Academy of Arts in 2016, where he has been giving lectures since then. He is also the leader of the international Plein Air and “Culture Synchron” exhibition in Dresden, Germany, founded by his professor, the Georgian artist Aleksandre-Aleko Adamia.

Sakvarelidze’s artworks are characterized by expressive colours, dynamic compositions, and symbolic elements that convey his personal and social commentary. His paintings are influenced by various artistic movements, such as expressionism, surrealism, and pop art, as well as by his own experiences and observations. 

His works are kept in private and public collections in Georgia, Europe, and America. Most recently, two of his paintings were sold at the Hessink Contemporary Art Auction.

The exhibition’s opening was attended by the artist’s students, friends, and representatives of the art field, who praised his talent and originality. 

Sakvarelidze thanked the National Gallery for hosting his exhibition and expressed his gratitude to his supporters and admirers. He also announced that he will travel to Belgium soon to work on a new exhibition, which will be on show in April 2024 at the Eristavi Gallery, the only Georgian gallery promoting Georgian art in Belgium and the Benelux countries.
