The Baylor mosaic - Public Mosaics

Featured In Baylor School, Chattanooga, TN

Hand-made tile, smalti, iridescent glass / 485 x 845 in

The Baylor mosaic was one of the first mosaic projects I have done. I was Artist in Residence at Baylor School, seeking a language of my own in mosaic, combining hand-made pieces with smalti and iridescent glass. The theme was chosen by the school, because the mosaic is in the Arts building.

Fine Arts Bldg, Baylor School Chattanooga, TN

Daud Akhriev was born in the former Soviet Union in 1959. He studied classical painting and drawing for 14 years, graduating with honors from the Repin Institute (Russian Academy of Fine Art) with a masters degree in fine art, under the tutelage of the late painter and Academic, Piotr Fomin. In 1991 he emigrated to Chattanooga, Tennessee. Akhriev, now a U.S. citizen, shares his time between Andalusia, Spain, and Chattanooga, Tennessee with his artist wife.

Akhriev is internationally sought after as an instructor for figure and landscape painting and for his monumental work. The Four Seasons, his four 9 foot bronze figures completed for the city of Chattanooga, are listed on the national Public Art Registry. Additional public art includes the Erlanger Chapel Mosaic and the Baylor School Mosaic, as well as murals at the Collegedale Seventh-day Adventist Church and St. Peter's Episcopal.

Daud Akhriev, Stylistic Pluralism was published in 2002 by Common Place publishing. He is also featured in Traditions Rediscovered, the Finley Collection of Russian Art. Akhriev’s drawings are in several books about the Repin Institute, both in Russian language and in Chinese, and in numerous magazines such as Artists Magazine, Pastel Journal, Island Journal, Chattanooga Magazine, Southern Living and American Art Collector.
