Gocha and Nino’s paintings are like interesting riddles: Gocha and Nino’s pictorial linear facial expression. The deeper you go, the more novelty and psychological strokes you will discover. Impressionist and expressionist tendencies are gathered here, as well as theatrical realism. That means, synthesis, which is typical to postmodern art, is given. Their phenomenon is distinguished, as it does not belong to any of the artistic courses. In addition, it includes each of them in itself. Impressionism, expressionism, cubism, constructivism, all are in full synthesis and each of them has its own functional significance. Moreover, Gocha and Nino have borrowed the specification of the characterization from realism, which doubles the impression gained from the paintings. They are using the principle of graphical asymmetry with stunning craftsmanship. That way they manage to reflect the individuality of the person. If we go deeper, we will discover many interesting details, seemingly irrelevant to the topic. However, after the emotional perception and understating of the composition, the fact of them being organic is not doubted. The process of perception of their art includes our meditation-contemplate, like we are drawing into the picture. According to the information available , they are unique worldwide events. I am deeply convinced that the phenomenon of Gocha and Nino will be a subject of judgment and deep study many times.
