Interview: Maya Jimsheleishvili

 

Luca Curci talks with the artist Maya Jimsheleishvili, the PUBLIC VOTE winner of IT’S LIQUID INTERNATIONAL CONTEST 4TH EDITION 2017.

Maya Jimsheleishvili was born in 1979 in Tbilisi, Georgia. Since she was a little, she has always had a passion for art, specifically painting and music. Graduated in 2003 from the Tbilisi State Academy of Arts in 2003, she works in oil, tempera, gold leaf, ink, pastel, graphite, playing with the materials, mixing them and enjoying the results, even when it is a “failure”. As a graphic artist, one of the very important things for her is “the line” – each line in her drawings or paintings is a stream of energy. “I experiment with different styles hopefully moving to the right direction to find myself. My art has taught me who I am but I still continue exploring the deepest parts of my soul. I enjoy searching for harmony of colors“.

Luca Curci – What do you think about the concept of this contest? What drove you to participate in this contest?

Maya Jimsheleishvili – I decided to participate in this contest as it seemed to me quite promising to help me to introduce my art to worldwide public.

 

L. C. – There’s a lot of artwork on the market today, how do you differentiate yours from the rest?

M. J. – Of course there are so many interesting artworks on the market and it’s quite difficult to get noticed with your art. I paint emotions, feelings that I experience in that moment. Each of my work is a part of me and quite often very different one. I am always sincere in my works and people feel it. All my work is a new journey. I play with different styles and at the same moment move to the direction where I finally find myself. Every piece of my art is the world I see through the prism of my heart.

L. C. – Did your style change over the years? How?

M. J. – Of course my style changes over the time. I’m in permanent searching. I always experiment with styles, technics, materials. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. That’s the process and I enjoy it very much. The line in my drawings or paintings is a fountain (stream) of energy.

 

L. C. – What art themes do you pursue? What are your preferred subjects if any?

M. J. – I don’t have any specific themes as it always depends from where I get my inspiration. But still, above all I love to paint women and trees. Because to me they seem full of mysticism and eternal beauty.

L. C. – How do you find creative inspiration?

M. J. – Art is everything to me. I get inspiration from everything in the universe. Even a tiny thing can inspire me to create something thrilling and new.I get inspired from everything that attracts me and awakens emotions deep inside of me.

 

L. C. – Did you feel comfortable cooperating with us?

M. J. – Of course it has been a great pleasure working with you and I hope it’s just the beginning.

 

L. C. – What is your idea about It’s Liquid Group?

M. J. – To me It’s Liquid Group gives great opportunity to young and emerging artists to get noticed worldwide.
