In 1992 the painter's father died and he moved with his family for permanent living to Moscow.

All this time, he was drawn to his homeland and in 2013 he is finally back to Georgia where he faces very big changes of the cultural and social life. So he decided to freely present his father's works that at this moment are being kept in Georgian National Museum of Music, Choreography and Cinema.
