Lagidze is known for his highly structured and layered abstract paintings and philosophical approach to art. He is sought-after in the international art world, but notoriously reclusive preferring to exhibit exclusively in his own gallery in Georgia’s capital, Tbilisi.
Levan Lagidze’s paintings are deep, vibrant, and textured. His art shares experience through abstraction, connecting to universal narratives such as landscape and urbanisation.
He is adamant in saying “I don’t want to surprise or shock you, I only want to share with you.”
Layers of colour and structure entice the viewer to look deeper into the paintings where they discover ever more the more they look. Colour is at the heart of Lagidze’s work.
The title “Bach Exercises” reflects the cadence in the paintings. "Listening to Bach I see the infinite … Each measure, rhythm, accent and pause is so precise that his music is always new and unexpected. This is the magic of universal composition. The music you can see or the painting you can listen to…” (Levan Lagidze)
