Cavaleria by Alexey Shervashidze-Chachba
Alexey Shervashidze-Chachba in his paintings boldly uses decorative principles of cubo-futurizm. The mobile dynamics of the compositions, interpenetration of seemingly opposing colours and shapes gives the impression of bizarre colour-changing kaleidoscope. Series of paintings "Cavaleria" is a part of a larger personal project of the artist, inspired by the story of the legendary "Wild Division", where his ancestors served. The artist, impressed by the fortitude of the spirit and deeds of the Knights of the “Abkhaz hundred” in the Circassian regiment, who were applauded by the enemies and who received medals for humanity in war times, created his paintings as a window into the world where joy and love, generosity and friendship are in safe hands of the Knights.
