Art Gallery-Cafe Rusudan Petviashvili in Batumi
Georgia, Batumi

Rusudan Petviashvili was born in Tbilisi on January 25, 1968. She started painting when she was one year and ten months old. The first solo exhibition was held at the age of six, where up to one hundred of her graphic and color paintings were exhibited. They were made in a large format and with a special drawing technique, which was very complicated, especially considering the age of the artist. The drawings were made in one touch, that is, the entire drawing was performed without interruption from the sheet. Scientists, as well as the general public, were amazed to see such amazing skills in a child.
At the age of eight, Rusudan Petviashvili held two solo exhibitions in Moscow. Three years later, another exhibition was held again in Moscow and then in Tbilisi. Thirteen-year-old Rusudan exhibited her works in various cities of France and in Paris itself.
In subsequent years, exhibitions were held in Vienna, Budapest, Madrid, London, again Moscow and Tbilisi, as well as, in recent years, in France and the USA.
Books with illustrations by Rusudan were published. Among them: “The Knight in the Tiger Skin” and “National Tales of Georgia”. Among admirers of talent Rusudan - well-known artists, politicians and art historians. Her works were called genius by Pablo Picasso, the 43rd President of the United States George W. Bush and Margaret Thatcher expressed admiration for her, who received a picture of the young artist as a gift during an official visit to Tbilisi in 1987. The Cambridge Biographical Center (England) included Rusudan Petviashvili in the book "2000 prominent people of the twentieth century."
Rusudan received a blessing from His Holiness His Beatitude Elijah II, Catholicos-Patriarch of All Georgia for the creation of miniatures for the Gospel.
The Rusudan Petviashvili Art Gallery in Batumi has its own cafe, where live music sounds along with artwork.
