Vladimir Kandelaki is an outstanding representative of the generation of Georgian painters from the 1970s. He was one the first who after many years brought surrealism back into life in Georgia. A nonconformist artist he never followed blindly the forms and stereotypes suggested by the European avant-garde. His ideas are easy to understand and grasp. Vladimir Kandelakiís works are not only original, but also deeply national. Artist of the mind he has always managed to mingle traditional Georgian intonations with a variety of new trends and directions, always in a natural and beautiful way.

He participated in many exhibitions in Georgia and abroad including The Gallery of Contemporary Arts in Munich, The House of Ministry of Education in Helsinki, Franklin Square Art Center in Washington etc.

His work is kept in the Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey, Cremona Foundation Mechanicsville, Maryland, Museum of the Balch Institute for Ethnic Studies Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Tretyakov Gallery Moscow, Russia, The Museum of Oriental Arts Moscow, Russia, The Gallery of Contemporary Arts Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia, Magnitogorsk Museum Magnitogorsk, Russia, Lapintahi Museum Lapintahi, Finland, Sitko Foundation Milan, Italy and private collections in Georgia, Europe and USA.
