Amiran is familiar with the specific Judaic Culture and its themes. Much inspiration comes from religious life, from people, as nudes as well as portraits.
Quintessential in Amirans sculptures are their composition and shape. He always tries to create compact sculptures, which depending on their composition may consist of stone, marble or bronze. The artist is very keen on details such as the composition of hands, the movement of the body and any possible clothes. Amiran leaves nothing to chance; every detail must add to the integral composition. The tridimentional aspect of his sculptures is considered as essentially important by the artist. Furthermore he wishes all forms to be interesting in their graphical expression, as well as with regard to their being connected which each other in perfect harmony.
Amiran Djanashvili had exhibitions in many countries. His works have been purchased in the United States of America, Japan, Israel, the former Soviet Union, as well as , of course , in the Netherlands
