Omar Chkhaidze is an artist who introduced a new aesthetics in painting - an aesthetics of Light, and showed how Light can be transformed into color. Light has become a major subject in his work. He is a founder of a new direction in fine arts - the Light-figurative painting.
Omar Chkhaidze was born in Georgia on the 16th of April, 1944. In 1960 he entered the Ya. Nikoladze art school, later, in 1966, the Tbilisi State Academy of Arts, the faculty of painting.
Since 1994 he livies and works in Moscow. In 2000 he opened his gallery in the Central House of artists.
An artist-innovator Omar Chkhaidze in fact followed in the footsteps of the first avant-guarde artists, also, as they did, developing the language of pure art. His most recent works show that the era of neoplastisism and suprematism initiated in the 1910 -1920s by Mondrian and Malevich, and also the pangeometric traditions that have played out for centuries, have been successfully concluded. Having created the painting "Out into Light", Omar Chkhaidze broke away from the notorious "black square" personifying darkness into Light - the substance of the Universe, and began to paint only Light, only the vibration of spiritual Light.
Omar Chkhaidze is a Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Arts, a Member of the European Academy of Natural Scienses, a Member of the Russian Artists Union, a Member of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, a Member of the Georgian Artists Union, a Member of the International Arts Association UNESCO.
In 2016 the Russian Academy of Arts held a presentaion of the project "Light-figurative painting", and the book "My way" by Omar Chkhaidze. The artist was awarded a Gold medal by the Russian Academy of Arts for the creatoin of a new direction in the art of painting. At this pesentation he was also assigned the honorary degree "The Knight of Science and Arts" by the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, and was awarded a medal. The European Academy of Natural Sciences awarded Omar Chkhaidze the Leonardo da Vinci medal and the Vasily Kandinsky medal for the new direction in fine arts.
Omar Chkhaidze's circle of interest is not only confined to painting. He is the author of the innovation project The Center of Light worked out in 2016. A precisely verified structure of this architectural ensemble contains in itself the Universe code. The author assumes, the gravitation and levitaion substance of Light and Darkness - the ether (the basic element of Dmitry Mendeleev's periodic table) - creates an electromagnetic, quantum vibrational field. It fills the space of the ensemble and builds up the attraction of spiritual Light energy which generates a powerful protection field, purifies and heals the sole and matter, and unifies all the nations and confessions of our planet.
In 2017 Omar Chkhaidze obtained a Russian Federation State patent for this project. Its implementation is waiting for its hour to come.
Omar Chkhaidze carries on Vladimir Vernadsky's doctrine and expands the sphere of the planet concept: biosphere - the sphere of life (1875, Eduard Suess); antroposphere - the sphere of man (1902, Dmitri Anuchin); noosphere - the sphere of mind (1927, Edouard Le Roy) - up to the infinity of the Universe. He believes, the entire Universe is created from a single substance, which Xenophanes in the VI century BC called the spherical being.
This all-embracing spiritual sphere has two aspects: Light and Darkness. Omar Chkhaidze suggests referring to them as luxosphere (lat. lux - light) and tenebraesphere (lat. tenebrae - darkness). The unity and harmony of Light and Darkness is the top stage of boisphere and noosphere evolution, and the end-point of such evolution will be their fusion with luxosspere and tenebraesphere. Galileo Galilei, Isaak Newton and some others were aware of tenebraesphere, but one of them feared to repeat Giordano Bruno's destiny, the other was afraid of the Royal Family's anger, all the rest lacked certainty.
In 2017 the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences awarded Omar Chkhaidze the Gold medal of Peter Kapitza for this discovery.
Now, following the inventors who gave the world such instruments as microscope (1590, Hans Jansen), telescope (1609, Galileo Galilei), nooscope (2011, Anton Vaino), in cooperation with the scientists, he intends to build luxoscope - a device for measuring the field of spiritual Light around and within the human being, in his osseous, muscle and nervous systems (imagination, iinspiration, intuition).
In parallel, he suggests to build an installation, analogous in form to luxosphere, harmonizing spiritual Light in osseous, muscle, and nervous systems, and healing the human body.
In his work Omar Chkhaidze tries to combine art, philosophy and science. He believes that only with Love, in the unity of science, philosophy and art, mankind can fulfil their mission on our planet. Love is the key to everything. Like gravity!
Being a boy of thirteen, at a lesson of physics, Omar declared he knew how to build a perpetuum mobile. At that time people laughed at him. Today, after 60 years, he is ready to discuss the subject.
