Mariam Odishelidze

b 1988 Tiflis, Georgia. Lives and works in Düsseldorf Germany.


My paintings are very personal, they are all like a self-portrait. It doesn’t matter if they are abstract, figurative or concrete, they still are part of a history, which is called my life.
They could also represent biographical stories, joy or human concern and sorrow. For example, loneliness or other important existential questions that are important for everyone regardless of nationality, religion or social status. When sometimes abstract objects become so unimportant that they lose their own form and visuals, still in each of them something very personal can be found, for example, Georgian letters, which are impossible to identify if you haven´t seen them before.

My Homeland and my identity are always following me. Sometimes as aesthetic and sometimes as fictional Depiction and I enjoy this mysterious moment in it. All my paintings are questioning the meaning of our existence: What is life? Why have I come into this world? Why are some things important to me? Who am I? At least, these are the questions, which I believe are important for each of us.
