Thea Gvetadze’s paintings, sculptures and installations pay tribute to scenes, moments and individuals, that carry some sorts of symbolism to her and profoundly shape her as a person. As an extraordinarily sensitive individual, she never fails to seize the beautiful moments on her life path and transforms them in her works.


Tamo Jugheli accidentally found her love for art, when she bought the very first pair of markers and pencils at the age of 22. Her work is raw and emotional- none of her paintings is ever planned, but they are fruit of spontaneity.
