Although Wekua uses representational elements in most of his works, his visual symbolism is often perplexing and self-contained. His practice develops elements inspired by both contemporary culture and by his background – he is originally from Soviet Georgia but left at the age of 15 and has since then been living in Germany and Switzerland. All that remains of his past are ruins, strangely juxtaposed with his present-day perspective.
