My name is Tamo Jugeli. I am an artist from Tbilisi (Georgia), a small country in Eastern Europe. Internally, I am not quite sure what specifically captivated me to start creating my artwork. It was sudden and unexpected. I had never painted or drawn before and, to be honest, it never interested me either. It was kind of always there and I was just away from it. Suddenly, at twenty-two, I started painting. In both an emotionally and mentally state, I took a pen and started drawing.
Additionally, I felt like no place was right for me in everyday life. I kind of didn’t feel like I belonged anywhere. My job at the time didn't bring me pleasure, quite the opposite. I can proudly say that I was drowning and losing myself more and more. Based on my nature, if I occupy myself with something that I don't appreciate doing, it affects me in every wrong way. All this probably slowly collected inside of me and came out in the form of art.
