Meir Pichhadze was born in 1955 in Georgia.
He immigrated to Israel in 1973 and graduated from the Tel Aviv School of Painting. Pichhadze produces paintings, figurative and abstract, with geometric and organic forms, which are invariably finished in "industrial" technique and color. Pichhadze collates and quotes conventional symbols and iconography from various cultural systems, assembling them in a discontinuous manner in order to subvert the possibility of seeing iconicity in the painting.
Following a solo exhibition at the Tel Aviv Artist's Studio in 1994 Pichhadze decided to explore his sense of detachment in New York. He began creating very small paintings after old family photographs from a childhood album he carried with him on long trips. In 2003 at the Tel Aviv Musem, Pichhadaze exhibited a series of paintings that he called Art as Autobiography. Throughout the last decade Pichhadze has also been painting with childish symbols, known as the "children paintings".
