Where to Find Tbilisi's Stunning Street Art

Street art has a long and fascinating history and has been around the world for many decades. However, in Tbilisi its a relatively new trend. For many years, streets of the capital were covered with ordinary writings done with spray paint. Luckily, this has changed. With emerging local street artists Tbilisi now hides beautiful and captivating art in its backstreets and underground passways.

Dr. Love

Bacha Khoperia, known as Dr. Love has been making street art for 8 years and is already one of the most popular artists of the country. His famous mural, Girl while making a selfie, and a piece on air pollution brought him not only local but international recognition as he took part in many street art festivals abroad, including Bristol’s Upfest. His art pops up in many parts of Tbilisi, Kutaisi, and Batumi with the aim to spread love all around the globe.

Tamoonz

Tamuna Tskhekaia, or Tamoonz as locals know her, is a graphic designer by profession. She created her first street art piece at the age of 17 with a paintbrush as graffiti accessories where not available in the country at that time. Her art caught the eye of international Street Art Festival organizers who invited her to participate in Belgium. Some of her most famous murals feature girls with long, floaty hair.

Most of his work is around the theme of Georgia, mainly dominated by Khinkali, the national dish of meat dumplings, religion and culture.
