Karlo Kacharava (February 7, 1964–April 9, 1994) was a Georgian artist, poet, essayist and art critic born in Samtredia. In 1986 he graduated from the Tbilisi State Academy of Arts and from 1986 to his death in 1994 he worked at the Giorgi Chubinashvili Institute of Art History.
In 1987, the "X Floor" group moved to a studio in the Marjanishvili Theater, where Mamuka Tsetskhladze worked as a decorator. Later this period (1987-91) was called the "Marjanishvili Period." The exhibitions, rallies, and happenings held in Tbilisi in May-October 1988 became an important event in the history of Georgian art for their direct and participatory engagement with the viewer. The group was known to hold exhibitions in non-traditional places, such as the underground passage of First Republic Square. The "X Floor" group went on to exhibit in Western Europe, including in East Berlin, Munich, Cologne, Narva, and Kassel.

In October 1993, Kacharava left for Moscow. The artist was struck in the back of the head with a heavy object by a robber, causing him to be treated for a mild concussion. In 1994, the artist returned to Tbilisi. Suddenly at the end of March, he suffered from an aneurism. Despite two brain surgeries, Kacharava died on April 9, 1994, at the age of 30. The artist left unfinished his final work, "The Art of Darkness," which he painted for 11 days in the dark by candlelight.[2][3]
