Georgia: Artists and Artisans

Gela Jincheradze's art

Gela Jincheradze's strong artistic vision.

Read about two unusual Georgians, one an artist, the other a craftsman.

Fourty-four year old Gela Jincheradze’s paintings are engaging and true, despite  — or maybe because of — his struggle with a life long mental illness. Click here for GIPA student Ina Charkviana’s sensitive profile and of course, many photos of Gela’s work.

Meanwhile, GIPA student Nino Burjanadze meets with young metal engraver Giorgi Sherozia, the child of refugees from the 1992 Abkhazian conflict whose family never managed to get back on their feet financially. Giorgi received his training from a vocational program set up by the Norwegian refugee Council. Read the story here.
