The works of the young artist soon captured attention in regional and international exhibitions. He exhibited his work in Georgia, the U.S., Germany, Switzerland and Russia, through 26 exhibitions. The artist’s works are now kept in private collections and different museums.

Gugushvili, a talented and valuable artist, has been honored with various international awards and a Gold Medal for an international exhibition in Osaka.

Gugushvili has also been awarded a top honor – the State Prize.
