Hatu Chkheidze is an artist from Georgia (Country).
She is a graduate of the Moscow and Tbilisi Art Academies.
Her older paintings are mainly surrealistic-psychological visions depicted on large canvases. She uses extraordinary technique, incongruous juxtapositions, and distinctive bizarre elements to bring her imagination to the audience.
In 1999, she moved to New York. She won the Soho International Fine Arts Competition that year, and the Emerging Artist Competition in 2000.
For the following two years, her work was on display in many New York galleries; Limner gallery, Agora Gallery, Grant Gallery, Arts Forum Gallery, Beadleston Gallery, and Jacob K Javits Convention Center, among others.
Since 2002, she has been absent from the public view—mostly unwilling to showcase her newer works which favor psychologically characterized classical portraits.
The signature artistic approach still dictates the value, shape and texture; However, during this period she conveys human emotions and sensations of perception through intense lines, more vivid colors, rhythm, and decorative symbols.
