In 1994, Zaza Tushmalischvili and Annilie Hillmer met.
Fascinated by the artist's pictures, the psychologist becomes his gallery owner and supports him in finding a second home in Berlin. She lets him show her his Georgia, a landscape full of poetry and myths. She gets to know his family and friends and his artistic companions.
Annilie Hillmer specializes in Georgian art, shows Tushmalischvili's pictures at international art fairs and in 2007 founds the Georgia Berlin gallery.
Zaza Tushmalishvili is now one of the best-known Georgian painters.
The artist developed his unmistakable pictorial language in Berlin: Iconographic elements of Christian-religious painting merge with cubist or surrealist forms. In the warm colors and sophisticated painting techniques, his Georgian homeland becomes just as tangible as his immersion in modern western painting.
