Irma Sharikadze graduated in 1997 with a degree in ceramics from the M. Toidze School of Arts in Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia. Upon completion she took classes of pantomime and performed at the Tbilisi State Pantomime Theater for two years, but she quickly realised her true talent and passion lay in the art of photography.
Sharikadze states Niko Pirosmani, the world famous primitive artist, and Sergei Parajanov, a famous Gerogian/Armenian film director as her main inspirations, not only for their style but also for their personal life convictions.
The artist's motto is as follows: "Finding and uncovering beauty is my mission. Moreover, it's my fate. Human beauty is a mystery inseparable from love. Love is a light that illuminates tortuous paths of life and grants us freedom. Freedom to make art..."
Irma Sharikadze lives and works in Tbilisi.
