Participant Profile

Lado Lomitashvili

Public Art

Lado Lomitashvili lives and works in Tbilisi, Georgia. He was studying in the Architecture Faculty at Tbilisi State Academy of Arts (TSSA). He works in a range of techniques and media: painting, photography, book illustration, sculpture and installation. In his abstract works, architecture and product design are substantial elements. His functionless sculptural objects stress their own roles and structures. He mostly works with materials like iron, wood and fabric. Lado has been a regular participant in exhibitions both in Georgia and abroad in recent years.

With his architectural background and a special interest in the public space, Lado was interested in getting acquainted with Kazakhstan, its culture, and historical architectural and spatial artefacts in close collaboration with the local community. As an emerging artist, he also considerd it very important to engage in an exchange of experience with colleagues at an international level.
