‘Tbilisi - Rustaveli Avenue’
On the streets in Tbilisi many people try to make a living and this in different ways.
At several places, people sell all kinds of items from the Soviet era. It’s even possible to buy an old CCCP-passport. Have a look at the pictures in the workshop.
The main picture here is taken on Rustaveli Avenue.
This is the 1.5 km long main street of the capital where you can find government buildings, museums, churches and theaters. This avenue has a very busy traffic but also wide footpaths with people strolling around at every time of the day.
The man on the picture tries to make a living from painting all kinds of scenes.

street art and artists-inseparable view of many cities and something,that defines character and atmoaphere of a particular city.Here you were able to portrait not only the artist at his work,but also his finished paintings.
Interesting and well framed street shot.
Have a nice sunday

Wanneer ik zijn werk allemaal zie, zou het misschien wel mogelijk zijn dat hij kan leven van werken.
Ik vind dit wel een groot artist, ik heb de indruk dat hij kan schilderen.
Mooi foto, maar ook de twee bijkomende foto's zijn eveneens mooi om naar te kijken.
Pasporten op de markt wel is waar geperforeerd, maar toch wat vreemd.
Goed beeld uit Tbilisi, bedankt.

Nice capture of this Street artist in Tblisi with good pov and good compo.
O know that those people are real masters of copying. No wonder if you see on their stands a Picasso or evene a Leonardo !
TFS and best regards

nice the view of the street artist as is painting this young and new couple.Really in the streets in many countries you can find someone a lot of interesting things about the life of the country.Here the WS looks so right off,so i enjoy these items that are spread on the road and are for selling.

This may not be the kind of paintings I would like to have on my wall, but street galleries like this usually offer opportunities for interesting and colourful photos with a lot of local flavour. You have composed this very nicely from a good POV where we can look over the shoulder of the artist.
Trying to enter a country showing a Soviet passport would be a strange experience. Passport police rarely have a sense of humour.

I'm enjoying your photos from Georgia. I like street vendors, and this artist has some lovely work. I like the diagonal presentation, and the view of him painting from the bride and groom. The WS photos are equally interesting. I would love to look through these items and pick some souvenirs. :-)

Very nice show of his art, with excellent framing including the artist surrounded by his paintings, giving more colors to the image! The workshops are also very interesting! Excellent job!

It is always interestin to study an artist at work. Here you have captured a fine picture of the artist and his present painting at the same time. Did he produce all the pictures on display here? This is a very good daily life street view.

This is a very nice painting the guy was working on. Along with your informative note, it is a very interesting daily life from the country of Georgia.

A gorgeous and very vital, with this scene of daily life in the city, you've picked a great time running the painter his work, which seems very real ... perhaps taking a photo model.
Some of the pictures that we can see in the picture look very interesting.
Very pretty color, which reproduces very well the pictures.
Good management of light and perfect sharpness in detail.
Have a nice day.

A passionate talented artist at work captured skilfully by another artist! It's timely short without intrusion showing his intense concentration caught unaware. The brilliant diagonal touch and his spot on position allow viewers to enjoy the whole scene and his works on display which add lots of more colours. I love the nature of this shot for it makes me feel as though I've had a chance to look at real situation there, this is the best part of this picture actually. Delightful on which you have captured this expertly, Congrats, TFS

I like very much this presentation of the street artist at work. A very natural scene framed superbly by the artist's own works. He has a rich collection arranged neatly according to style and technique. The perspective you've given to your composition adds dynamism to the static scene and leads our glance along the paintings delightfully. Lighting and colours are wonderful. There's superb depth and sharpness and it's great you were able to include a glimpse of the photo he's reproducing. The portrait he's creating is much sweeter and more vibrant, you are showing him working attentively on the final touches. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

its always fun to walk by and through these areas, especially with camera in hand.
I like this photo because there are no wasted spaces, all areas of the frame have something interesting to look at.
varied colors and subjects too.

Une belle façon de cadrer l'artiste peintre en plein travail et entourée de tout ces tableaux en exposition, j'aime ces artiste des rues, cela donne une "animation" très agréable dans les rues
