Samegrelo (Mengrelia)
Mingrelia:
Notable people of Samegrelo:
Radish Tordia (August 21, 1936) is a painter of figurative art from Georgia (was born in Abasha). He works in oil painting, with particular emphasis on colouristic features. His preferred subject is women, who he regards as "the most beautiful creation in the world".

He graduated from the J. Nikoladze Art Studio in Tblisi in 1956, and then moved on to the Tbilisi State Academy of Fine Arts, from where he graduated in 1962.

He has been widely lauded in his home country, where he was denoted the "Honoured Artist of Georgia" in 1979, and awarded the State Prize the following year. In 1990, he became the "People's Artist of Georgia", and was the recipient of the "Order of Honour" in 1997. He has regularly exhibited throughout Georgia and Russia since 1978, and abroad since 1980, including Tunisia, Cologne, Washington, D.C. and London.

His work can be found in the private collections of the Queen of the Netherlands, former Georgian President Eduard Shevardnadze, former German political leaders Helmut Kohl and Roman Herzog. It is also exhibited at the The Georgian National Museum, the Tretyakov Gallery and the Museum of Oriental Art in Moscow, the Russian Museum in Saint Petersburg, and the Peter Ludwig Museum in Cologne.

He presently lives in Tbilisi.
