Georgian artist Giorgi (Gogi) Roinishvili (1921–2000) was born in Tbilisi.
In 1939 he entered the Academy of Arts – fine arts department. He participated in the Second World War. After the war he continued studying in Academy of Arts under Ucha Japaridze. His art-masters also were such artists of standing reputation as Joseph Sharleman, David Kakabadze, Sergo Kobuladze. In 1946 he graduated from the Academy of Arts and began to work in the children’s magazine "Dila" ("Morning"), where he was art editor for a long time.
From 1947 he was a regular participant in All-Union and local exhibitions. In 1970’s and 1980’s he combined his work in the magazine with teaching at the Tbilisi state University.
But in spite of that he rather belonged to the class of the artists leading the life of a recluse.
Gogi Roinishvili never arranged personal exhibitions, few articles were written about him. His works of art are being collected in Georgia as well as abroad.
The aim of this album is to expose a wonderful artist, whose creative work has for a long time remained unknown to mass audience.
