Tezi Gabunia calls his method Falsification, that is a reflection upon the basic features of the contemporary world - the absolute virtualization. Contemporary visual language studies provides handling and creation of mediums that itself originates a new generation of art. An artwork is a result of industrialized production, not creation. As the production process is completely industrialized, which makes massive production in a short time possible. This kind of attitude also abolishes artist a an original creator. Tezi Gabunia uses various mediums for producing and publishing his work. As the Internet is an important feature of contemporary lifestyle, Social networks, virtual dimension are one of the main mediums for the artist to exhibit his artwork.
