Matiko Mamaladze was born in 1964 in Tbilisi, Georgia. She grew up in an artistic family, surrounded by her mother’s and grandfather’s paintings. They were a source of inspiration to Matiko and encouraged her to study art. The creative atmosphere she was immersed in influenced her to such an extent, that from early times drawing and painting became necessities she couldn’t imagine herself without. Matiko studied in the Nikoladze Art School and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Tbilisi. Matiko’s work is figurative and centers on subjects, which she finds unique and interesting. Matiko Mamaladze is an award-winning artist and her paintings can be found in many private collections across Europe and The United States. http://www.matiko.us/
