Revaz Tchantouria has developed a style of geometric abstraction. His colorful artworks express movement of different colors and geometric shapes. Revaz has always been fascinated by astronomy and finds inspiration in the geometric disposition of astronomy. He also takes inspiration from colors in nature and the different seasons.
He works with various techniques, mostly oil on canvas but also with paper collages and mixed media.
Influenced by avant-garde artists like Malevich, Kandinsky and Mondrian, his artworks elicit an individual impression and interpretation in each observer.
Revaz is originally from Georgia in the Caucasus, and has lived in Sweden since the late 1980s. He received his education in the studio of the prominent Georgian sculptor-abstractionist during 1974-1977 in Tbilisi. Karlo Grigolia was the founder of Georgian avant-garde art which was a forbidden underground movement during the Soviet period.
Revaz Tchantouria has had several exhibitions in Sweden and abroad. The first exhibition in Sweden was a group-exhibition of Georgian artists at Falsterbo Konsthall in 1994. He has for example presented his artwork at The National Museum Kiev Pictures Gallery in 2018 and at Bienal de Arte Barcelona at the Museum of European Modern Art (MEAM) in 2019.
Revaz has been a member of The Association of Georgian avant-garde artists since 1986.
Together with the Georgian artist Leri Chanturia he is also engaged in the conception of the “Architectural-Plastic Environment”. This involves the idea of presenting art as a part of different ecological environments.
