The Artist


Jhon Gogaberishvili lives in Tbilisi, Georgia. He was born in Vani, Georgia and graduated from Tbilisi State Academy of Fine Arts in 1970. After post-graduate studies he became a professor at Tbilisi State Academy of Fine Arts and is a senior figure and mentor in Georgian sculpture.

"There was neither time nor space before the universe was created. The whole universe was created after a big explosion and is full of planets and galactica, which move regularly and influence each other. It happened millions of years ago yet this regulation does not change. There is some divine force that makes unification, the universe's secret support.”
