Tamo Jugeli is a young, Georgian emerging artist born in 1994. During 2013-2017 she studied Journalism at David Aghmashenebeli University of Georgia and only started painting after. Soon she became mentored by internationally renowned artist and writer, Gia Edzgveradze.
Jugeli acknowledges her main aim in creativity to be adapting and expressing in visual arts Helene Cixous’ concept – “L’ecriture feminine”, unified space/spirit of feminine new vitality expressed in her paintings; where geometric forms and figures representing meta-physics are merging into exploding variety of twisted spaces, many planes in different perspectives and numerous emotional layers. Her large mixed media canvases but also round and oval shaped smaller formats are a good visualisation of her practice’s main aim.
