About

Natia Benashvili

My work relates to human’s inner conditions, sensations, how one relates to one’s own space and the space around them. I produce work in various media but mainly focus on painting, drawing and silkscreen printing.

I finished my bachelor and master studies in Fine Arts at the Tbilisi State Academy of Arts, including a one-year exchange program at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. During my studies I participated in many group exhibitions and projects. Since my graduation I mostly work independently.
