Eka Gotsiridze was born in Tbilisi, Georgia. She graduated from Tbilisi State
Academy of Fine Arts with MA degree in Fashion Design. During her student
years Eka got involved in a number of projects: designed costumes for awardwinning ballet films, "Improvisation" and "Divertissements", and participated and got high appraisal of her work in numerous student Fashion shows in Georgia, Russia, Estonia, Yugoslavia and Italy.
Immediately after graduation Eka took up a position of a fashion designer for a well-known clothing company in Georgia. She was also invited to teach a course in fashion illustration at the Tbilisi State Academy of Fine Arts.
In 1993 Eka moved to Cyprus. Thanks to very good drawing skills she had an opportunity to work on various creative projects, such as designing corporate clothing styles and graphic illustration for corporate clients including the Bankof Cyprus. She has also participated in numerous art exhibitions, presenting her oil paintings and has done a lot of commissioned work for art collectors.
From 2001 until 2008 Eka lived and worked in Georgia. During this period she ran the production of a small exclusive series of one-of-a-kind handmade felt coats, which were sold throughout the boutiques in London. She was also commissioned to create trendy designs for the performers and staff of the hippest nightclub in Tbilisi. In 2004/2006 Eka held several successful solo shows which showcased her newer body of work, consisting of fashion illustration prints and drawings. At this time she extended her artistic endeavours to design; creating a series of hand-crafted mirrors for Tagiss Arts Gallery, receiving critical acclaim from the viewers and the media. Eka became a member of the "Georgian Artist's Union" and was included in the "Encyclopaedia of Georgian Artists".
Currently Eka lives and works in Cyprus. Experience gained by engagement in such a wide diversity of art practices provoked Eka to find her own, unique way of expressing all her artistic aspirations and using all the knowledge and skills built up through the years. She took time to clarify her vision, experimenting with new media, techniques, colour, and completely immersed herself into the new journey of creating a series of collages, focusing on her two most admired subjects of interest: Beauty and Fashion.
