Nini Palavandishvili was born and raised in Tbilisi, Georgia. After studying Art History in Tbilisi, she graduated from the UdK Berlin in Faculty of Public and Industrial Communication. After returning to Georgia she worked as a graphic designer for diverse advertising companies, cultural institutions, media and book publishers. Designing catalogues for exhibitions and individual artists led her way back to visual art and the artist community.

In 2006 Nini joined the artist initiative GeoAIR and since then she is actively engaged in curating and organizing international exchange projects in Georgia and beyond its borders. Nini Palavandishvili is also a coordinator of an art residency program launched by GeoAIR in January 2010 in Tbilisi, Georgia.
