Georgian painter, graphic artist, theater artist.
Shalva Kikodze was two or three years old when he developed paresis on his right hand and was forced to paint with his left hand. He is one of those artists who has the magic to predict what will happen in future. His paintings seem that he knows something and tries to say. An exhibition of Kikodze's paintings was held in Paris in 1921. The world press wrote enthusiastically about his works. Died shortly after first appreciation. He had difficulty of breathing at the end of his life. Already ill he was enrolled in the 27-year-old sect (27 Club) which at that time, did not yet exist so clearly.
