The extraordinary art piece – a chair called the Egg Chair of Concrete

 
On April 27, 2018 Madatart held group exhibition of 18 artists from all over the world.  The show titled “Into The Heart Of The World” was held in the World Trade Gallery  located in the financial district of Manhattan. The dream location for all artists hosted the extraordinary art piece – a chair called the Egg Chair of Concrete by Solmaz Fooladi.
   Fully packed exhibition hosted curious crowd to view this extraordinary artwork. The Egg Chair is a new trend that fascinates its viewers. Ukrainian artist Solmaz Fooladi works in the Persian modernism style, combining the luxury and symbols of ancient civilizations with modern architectural trends and technologies. Not limiting herself to any architectural style in the creation of objects, Solmaz, however, prefers loft industrial style.
She also knows how to make dead things alive, collecting stuff from Soviet time, rusty metal, old wooden pieces and turning them into completely genuine work of art. In her projects, she also uses such materials as concrete, glass, fixtures, oxidized metal. Meanwhile, Solmaz is not divorced from her roots, filling the space with warmth and colors of the East. Flame and dignity of Persian Sun, an abundance of the Babylon gardens, the colorful riot of Oriental rugs are organically used in Solmaz Fooladi’s solutions with unexpected combinations of elements. Reinterpretation of what has become classic, giving the second life to seemingly unnecessary and forgotten subjects are Solmaz’s works major trends in the past few years.

“It looks so cool, but is it comfortable?”- asked our exhibition guest whose name was Mark. “The artistic and convenient at the same time”. “Feels smoother than it looks and is convenient” responded our guest after taking sit into the chair.

“ I wish I had something lIke this in my back yard”- Commented Madatart guest Sopia Dalin, who was focused on taking selfies while resting in the chair.

“Since I launched art promotion company, I represented various artists, but to represent Solmaz was a new experience for me, she can make piece of art, with sings, which sometimes, we did not pay attantion at all. People was really impressed, to see, how she accomplished this. I will be delighted to represent her in the future as her art is so special”

Meet Maya Jimsheleishvili at World Trade Gallery!!!

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“.

1.How do you describe your art to someone who doesn’t know it?

I see my art as energy created by the combination of lines, my colors, texture,  image, and mystics that is a reflection of my inner world.

2.Which contents/thematic are present in your artistic journey/research?

I couldn’t outline any specific theme. I am concentrating on my arts, as it is very much up to my mood. My inspiration is my environment and emotions. But to be more precise sometimes I like creating abstract paintings. I love to play with colors and lines. Female portraits are my favorite, in most cases, I represent the different side of my personality in them.

3.Tell me about your beginning as an artist.

I was born in 1979 in Tbilisi, Georgia. Since I was a little, I’ve always had a passion for art, specifically painting and music. I was often arranging concerts in my elementary school. I went to a musical gymnasium for 11 years. While being there I performed at several concerts with a symphonic orchestra and participated in international music contests held in Tbilisi. I became a laureate of the national contest of Georgia (1996) and took part in an international contest in Hannover, Germany (1997). On the other hand, I had a passion for painting from an early age. I had my first exhibition when I was in kindergarten.  

After graduating from the gymnasium I realized that my true vocation was painting and I decided to go to the Tbilisi State Academy of Arts, from which I graduated in 2003. I attended short courses in Art and interior design at Central Saint Martin college in London, (UAL:)

4.Tell me about the choice of that specific art medium for your own artistic research. What does it represent?

I work in oil, tempera, gold leaf, ink, pastel, graphite. I love playing with the materials, mix them and enjoy the results, even if it is a failure. As a graphic artist, one of the very important things for me is “the line” – each line in my drawings or paintings is a stream of energy. I experiment with different styles hopefully moving in 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 a harmony of colors. 

5.What is your way of working? Do you usually design a project or you just follow a vision (mental image) that turns into a project?

It`s very controversial. Sometimes I see what I paint and sometimes I paint what I see

Maya’s artworks will be presented by Madatart at World Trade Gallery(New York), April 27 2018!
