about Nino

   I am Nino Khundadze. I was born in Tbilisi, Georgia, still at the Soviet Union time, witnessed it`s end as a child. I was totally into art from early childhood. After school, I studied in Art Academy. Finished master’s degree in architecture and worked in several architectural studios for few years. After this my life changed, transformed from the usual one into something totally different, full of adventures, full of stories that one might not even believe were real. Life got me back to art. There is so much I want to tell. There is so much I want to write in words and paint with colors, that sometimes I think one life is not enough. So here I am, doing my best for this moment, sharing through my art and my words.
