We had the good fortune of connecting with Nino Bosikashvili and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Nino, why did you pursue a creative career?
As a kid, when I was asked what I wanted to become, with passion I would answer that I wanted to become an artist. I’m not quite sure where this sensation came from, but I always felt that this was my true path and I would dedicate my life to this career. As I grew older I developed as an artist and I know it was the right choice because for me art is the ultimate expression of hope.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I grew up in a tough period for my country. We had civil war, electricity and water was a subject of luxury, poverty and economic crisis was a daily reality and nobody was into painting or arts in general. Despite that fact, my parents managed to make my dream of becoming an artist come true. Today I follow this path and I develop. This is a very impressive process, full of emotions and energy. Sometimes it is positive, sometimes _ vice versa, but this is the motivation which helps you to do the one job that you love most. My art is still in process of evolution and I often tend to experiments. What I love more than the end product is the challenge and process of making it. Energy which overflows on me and the viewers of my artwork is of great significance to me, because energy enclosed in artwork transforms and interacts with the viewer. When I see this transaction, I assume that artwork has fulfilled its destiny and it gains new values.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My parents played huge role in my career and personality. Despite the fact that they are of a radically different profession, they are significant critics of my artworks (after me) and this helps to further develop myself. During my years in Arts Academy I got acquainted with many interesting artists and this gave me a huge deal of inspiration.
