  Elya
DeChino

He was born in 1955 in Tbilisi, in the Republic of Georgia. Since he was three years old, Elya has had a passion for the fine arts and has participated quite frequently in TV Art programs as well as having had his works published in children’s magazines.

Elya entered the Tbilisi Academy of Art in 1972 and graduated in 1979. Having been unable to create independently while studying in the Academy, he began to work very actively after graduation.

Profoundly inspired by different styles and schools, he presented his works regularly in the All-Union exhibitions.

Following the civil wars in the former USSR, Elya immigrated to the USA. Elya feels that he traveled more than enough and is happy to be putting down roots-literally: he loves to garden and finds inspiration for his landscapes there.

Plans for the future include honing his skills, experimenting with styles and growing-in more ways that one.
