Tiko is a Georgian German artist based in New York City. She decided to become an actor after learning that she can discover more about herself through acting. Tiko believes that acting is part of everyone’s daily life. To her, being an authentic actor means to be an authentic human being. Moreover, as a painter and poet, she approaches writing and directing scenes with three questions – what is the story about, who are involved, and why should the audience watch it. Her first short film “Lost in the City” is a perfect example for the experimental and direct approaches to those questions.
Besides acting, Tiko expresses her inner world through poetry and painting. She visualizes her poems through her paintings. Each of her works is a story of harmony between two seemingly-contradictory concepts – imperfection in perfection, perfection in imperfection, love in pain, and pain in love. She is not a technical painter and all of her artworks are her own experiments. She published a poetry book ‘Wenn die Leidenschaft ruft’ in 2016 in Germany. Her works have been published in several art magazines.
