Information

Iankoshvili studied at the Art Academy in Tbilisi. She showcased an early departure from the grim representation of idealized scenes of Communist reality towards a more vibrant, individualistic painterly style. Themes such as motherhood and femininity replaced the pseudo-ethnographic sexless depictions of female workers of the 1950s and 1960s. Her travels cemented in her work a desire to freely depict imagery usually unseen to the typically isolated Soviet Union where to exist as an artist was to conform to societies stringent masculine norms.
