David Sharashydze was born into a Georgian noble family in Tbilisi, Georgia, in 1959, was raised in his grandfather's stately home, and his inspiration very much comes from these roots. He graduated from Tbilisi State University and in 1990, started his career as a professional artist. He held his first exhibition in 1992. Following this exhibition, his works were shown across Europe in France, Switzerland and Britain, and in America.

David states that his imagery comes mainly from memories: ‘When the image matures – like a ripe apple – I go to the studio and transfer it to the canvas with simple, pleasing movements and with enjoyment’. David’s subjects arise from memories of his past, such as old Tbilisi courtyards, little morning coffee tables, a red armchair, thoughtful, long necked subjects, rich red pomegranates, ripe golden pears and elegant ladies with fans.  Blues and reds dominate these cool, calm paintings.

Very widely exhibited, David Sharashydze works and lives in Kiev and has been a member of UNESCO International Artists' Federation since 1993. His exhibitions include 2008, the ‘Vertical’ gallery, Salzburg, Austria; 2007, ‘International Art Festival,’ Ukrainian House, Kiev, Ukraine; 2004, the American Chamber of Commerce; 2003, ‘My British Journey,’ British Council, Kiev, Ukraine; 2000 ‘Sharashydze and Faulkner,’ Leith Gallery, Edinburgh, Scotland; 2002, ‘Georgian Table,’ gallery ‘Anixis', Baden, Switzerland; 2001, ‘Ananas-Bilder and Zeichunden. Eunwelt,’ Magdeburg, Germany and 1994, ‘Reflection,’ Broumfield Gallery, Boston, USA.
