Lola Jiblazee is a New York based artist from Tbilisi, Georgia. She primarily works with acrylic paint and digital forms to create her art. Influenced in her formative years by strong female role models during Georgia's Civil War, Lola developed a passion to echo the empowerment of women. Her career in the art scenes of Brooklyn and Manhattan's Lower East Side reflects her commitment to continue focusing on the issues that represent her. Lola has participated in numerous international exhibitions including “CENTENNIAL: She” curated by GCCA and the New York State Museum, Patricia Field’s ArtFashion, ONE YEAR OF RESISTANCE curated by Indira Cesarine at The Untitled Space, Frida Kahlo House at Satellite Art Fair powered by Frida Kahlo Corporation & Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology & History, and Galerie P38 during Paris Art Week 2019. In 2019 she debuted as a performance artist for “Not Buried but Waiting” a film by Marguerite Van Cook for Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei, Taiwan.

In her latest series "True World Story" by Lola Jiblazee explores hope, love, and courage during the COVID-19 pandemic. Isolated during the lockdown, Lola turned to social media and has asked her followers to share their positive quarantine stories. Those stories helped Lola to fight off her own anxieties. Lola grew up in the Republic of Georgia in the nineties during a Civil War. She had been under curfew and isolated, went without water and electricity, and was separated from loved ones for months. Those experiences greatly affected how she viewed the world. She struggled to overcome the PTSD that ensued but the experiences also made her stronger. Through her artwork, she attempts to convey how others can find joy in simple things which can help overcome tough times and remind people how beautiful life can be.

Tata and Crosby, Brooklyn, New York: “Easter Sunday I was feeling fried so I went outside for some fresh air because you can lose all sense of time during quarantine. I looked down, saw an small egg with light brown spots sitting quietly on the curb and thought 'an Easter Miracle!' I scrambled inside, grabbed a t-shirt to wrap it in and set up a lamp to keep it warm. I started searching what kind of bird egg it could be, how long it would take to hatch, local New York bird sanctuaries, how much incubators cost and how many times a day I would need to rotate the egg. It dawned on me that maybe I poached it from a momma bird so I went back outside to look for a nest and found that our neighbors had set up their Easter decorations the night before... with yolk on my face I guess that Easter Miracle wasn't everything it was cracked up to be.” - Crosby
