Karlo Kacharava

Modern Art is pleased to announce representation of the Estate of Karlo Kacharava (1964−1994).

Karlo Kacharava was an artist, theorist and poet living in Tbilisi, Georgia. Active through the 1980s and 1990s, the artist’s inventive approach to painting transgressed the boundaries of late Soviet visual culture, greatly contributing to contemporary art in the post-Soviet Caucasus.

Though his career was cut short by his early death at the age of thirty, Kacharava’s output and presence galvanized a generation of contemporary Georgian artists, eventually broadening the conversation beyond Georgia’s borders.
