Kurashvili’s works contain hints of irony and humor, while also evoking the feeling of a serious atmosphere. Based on photographs found through Google Images, they express personal imagination, sometimes with elements of fantasy, but the idea and concept belong to the contemporary world, as the works distinctly relate to history, art history and pop culture.
Also pursuing the medium of film making, Luka Kurashvili constantly observes acting characteristics of Hollywood entertainers. His work is influenced by various artists, ranging from Sandro Botticelli and Rembrandt van Rijn to Gustav Klimt and 20th century American Pop-Artists such as Andy Warhol and Tom Wesselmann, as well as by exhibits at Madame Tussauds wax museum.
Luka Kurashvili currently studies under Peter Doig Class at the Düsseldorf Art Academy. He will be featured in the upcoming book A Brush with the Real by Laurence King Publishing and Elephant (2014).
