Please view artworks by Meir Pichhadze presented in Kings gallery
Meir Pichhadze is an Israeli painter and sculptor. He was born in Georgia in Kutaisi in 1955 and emigrated with his family to Israel in 1973. Razu Ramishvili was the first and very important art teacher of the future artist. Especially this famous Georgian sculptor played a significant role in Meir’s acquaintance with the primitivism. Later in Israel his works revealed influences of Nico Pirosmany style. In the middle 1990s, Pichhadze traveled to New York and during his stay there he particularly painted images based on old family photographs.
The artist worked on black canvas instead of the traditional white. As he described: “I prefer to start painting by covering the canvas in black, like an existential bedding and then illuminate it”.
