The creativity of Zurab Konstantinoviç Tsereteli, a world renowned Russian painter from a Georgian origin is the topic of this article. His brave critical and expressionist attitude during both Soviet period and in the aftermath provided him a unique and a privileged position in the art world. Tsreteli, also the current head of the Russian Academy of Arts, has always embraced the socio-political matters and thus managed to be accepted as a contemporary model throughout the periods of his creativity. The painter is the first contemporary Russian artist to hold a solo exhibition in Turkey which took place in Tophane-i Amirane, the Gallery of Mimar Sinan University of Fine Arts, within the frame of cultural relations between Russia and Turkey. This article will touch upon the works of this exhibition as well as the other works of the artist being displayed in the gallery in Moscow which is named after him. ‘Apple’, his prominent work in this gallery, will be given special emphasis.
