Tiflis Avenue is an art center and a gallery specialized in the contemporary Georgian art. Based in the heart of Tbilisi's historic district, we represent a variety of professional artists working in different media. We offer artists a broad platform to show their works to a wide audience of art lovers, and at the same time, we give our customers a unique opportunity to experience contemporary Georgian art in all of its diversity.
Georgian art is a product of a long historic and cultural evolution process of the Georgian nation and the diverse Caucasus region, the process that encompassed millennia. With roots in rich archaic and ethnic tradition, Georgian art has grown along with the Georgian statehood starting from the ancient kingdoms of Kolkhis and Iberians. The location of the country on the crossroads of Asia and Europe has attracted travelers, merchants, missionaries and conquerors of all kinds and creeds, and defined its cultural setting for millennia. Georgian art tradition has thus experienced influences from Mesopotamian, Anatolian, Greek, Persian, Roman and Byzantine art throughout antiquity, it has further grown within the framework of Christian ecclesiastical and middle-eastern art in the Middle Ages, and ultimately it has evolved in the context of European and Russian art from the 19th century onwards.
Tiflis Avenue is managed and owned by the family of Iva Khokhlov and Eka Macharadze. Iva, who is a lawyer, and Eka, psychologist, have been passionate for Georgian art for many years, which ultimately led to the establishment of Tiflis Avenue in summer of 2010.
We opened Tiflis Avenue in a beautiful historic building located in one of the most picturesque locations of Tbilisi’s old town, on King Erekle II Street, where we have been holding solo and group exhibitions by a variety of artists regularly. This initiative was quickly followed by a launch of an online gallery.
We hope to be able to spread our passion for Georgian art, and to provide our local and international customers with an opportunity to experience quality Georgian art in all of the diversity of its colors, lines, textures and concepts. Read Less
