Davit Botchorishvili (b. 1988) originally from Georgia (Europe) is a multifaceted artist currently residing in Lincoln, Massachusetts. His artistic practice is deeply intertwined with his personal history as an immigrant exploring the complex interplay between identity, displacement, and the human condition through various mediums, including painting, sculpture, photography, and immersive installations.
 
Davit's academic journey in the arts began after a significant career shift from over a decade in the U.S. travel industry, where he initially moved to pursue opportunities after obtaining a Master's degree in Hospitality Management from Cornell University. His transition into the arts was marked by his enrollment at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design (MassArt), where he earned a Master of Fine Arts in 2024. At MassArt, Davit delved into themes of self and identity, utilizing 2D and 3D mediums and site-specific installations to express his introspections and observations. 
 
Davit's work is characterized by its depth and the synthesis of traditional techniques with innovative modern approaches. He draws heavily on the influences of nature, mythology, and spirituality, often portraying a world where the boundaries between the visible and the invisible blur. He aims to invite viewers into a dialogue of introspection and existential inquiry. His exhibitions often reflect his journey from a war-torn Georgia to the cultural mosaic of New York City and finally to his current residence in Massachusetts. Each piece he creates is a narrative thread of his life experiences, showcasing resilience and the search for identity against a backdrop of larger societal issues.

Aside from his artistic creations, Davit is also active in the community, engaging in talks and panels discussing the role of art in social change, the experiences of immigrant artists in the United States, and the integration of technology and traditional art forms. His work reflects his journey and invites the audience to explore the broader human experience through the lens of art.
 
Davit Botchorishvili is a dynamic artist whose work continues to evolve as he explores new concepts and challenges, making meaningful contributions to contemporary art and discussions around the intersections of culture, identity, and migration.
