"...you might believe that Niko Chocheli is four artists in one
to the extent that a solo show looks like a group exhibition."
"... what feeds Niko Chocheli's muse, from the classical
drawings of the great masters and the fantasy of Georgian
folk tales to the highly stylized Orthodox icons that populate
the interiors of the ancient churches and monasteries that are
everywhere in his homeland, the Republic of Georgia."
"He established the Chocheli School of Fine Arts, currently
located at Cross Keys Plaza in Doylestown, and began
teaching. Originally established by his father, Robert
Chocheli, in Tbilisi in 1958, the school is based on the
principles and practices of classical academies of art and the
teachings and styles of the great masters."
"In addition to his classically styled drawings, such as Lady
with Tresses, which is reminiscent of Michelangelo and other
grand masters' handiwork, Niko's other styles-illustration,
fantasy and iconography-flow across the pages of the books
that bear his name. "
