Nugzar Meladze is unique, individualis artist.
His art is authen c expression of avant-gardist tendencies. He is thinking art- ist.
Contemporary age is reﬂected with whole intensity in his art, since his pain ngs embody the basic “ins ncts” of our existence, which give the color of perfec on to our life marked with ego s c aspira ons.
And the ar sts presents us with wide spectrum of themes, the canvases are lit up by rainbow colors and “the way goes from suﬀering to happiness”.
I can most surely say, that Nugzar Meladze is an ar st of poe c nature, graced by the power of unleashed imagina on. Whole his ar s c work is a syntheses of unreal and surreal. Avant-gardist painter par ally maintained and par ally has gone beyond the tradi ons of Georgian art and adjusted to the new rhythm of this day and age, and expressed himself with the more reﬁned, elas c colors ﬁlled with nuances.
His portraits, landscapes and nature-mort are born by genuine imagina on, as for example: “Svane ”, “Sioni lake”, “Svane – Hatsvali”, “Lake-Sioni”, “Reﬂec on” and others. It is one great poetry wri en by brush on canvas. I think the abovemen oned pictures are illustra ons of his thoughts, search and aspira ons… when one observes his pain ngs, one remembers great Goethe “When viewing the work of art, it inﬂuences us, but it is impossible to explain it”.
I will repeat this words boldly in reference to the pain ngs of Nugzar Meladze.
His every painting or canvas produces many ques ons and calls for the discovery of the mystery.
The pain ng “Tea” is most beau ful, this is generaliza on of the greatness of the soul, the background of the picture and the hair of a woman are in one color, all the features of woman’s face are so precise, that one is reminded of greatly learned Durer. In the same way Durer has expressed the beauty, profundity, diversity, na onal ideals brought on the level of humanity, so also whole Georgia with its tradi on and everyday life is reﬂected in Nugzar Meladze’s art…
Canvas “Manana” (wife’s portrait) is done using mixed technique, is really a subtle pain ng, with orderly distribu on of colors. At the same me Georgian character is quite obvious. Picture is art form, color, line or brush stroke nuances (landscapes, nature-mort), celebra ng life. The ar st creates in high spirits the ar s c miracles. His pain ngs are extremely realis c and are marked by exalted ar s c mastery.
We can go on with the enumera on and analyzes of his pain ngs, but we have to note here one important impression: each of his work is charged with great poe c sense and intense lyricism. Yes, this ar st is a poet and puts colors into poems and poems into colors personiﬁed on canvas…
Nugzar Meladze’s art-aesthe c landscape has many unique points, in par cular, in his art there are two diﬀerent ar s c worlds, realis c and avant-gardist, and this makes his art more enchan ng.
Interes ng and mul faceted ar s c world of Nugzar Meladze eﬀortlessly merged with our culture and art.
