The hyper-realistic pencil on paper drawings of Georgian artist Tiko Sanikidze are rich with detail and replete with emotive expression. With a graduate degree in architecture, Sanikidze has mastered the subtleties of the hyper-realistic approach, combining a meticulous level of detail and intensification of physical form with subtle pictorial elements to create the illusion of a reality that’s entirely new.

While her images are almost photograph-like in their rendering, there is a deep expressionist undercurrent that imbues profound meaning in the drawings and transforms them into something more. Indeed, that is a main goal of Sanikidze’s art, to invite her viewers to see beyond the everyday physical landscape into the emotional depths that come to define the most cursory of experiences.

“I aspire to give the viewer a new emotional perspective in which we can appreciate everyday situations as we deal exclusively with how people appear, when in reality there is more than what we see. As a hyper-realistic artist, I use pencil to create drawings that go beyond a photograph. These objects and scenes in my drawings are meticulously detailed to create the illusion of a new reality not seen in in the original photo. My style focuses on emphasizing details
of the depicted subject, often not seen by the human eye. Hyper-realistic paintings and sculptures are not strict interpretations of photographs, nor are they literal illustrations of a particular scene or subject. My work is a distinct departure from the older and more literal school of Photorealism,” Sanikidze explains.
