According to researchers, the works of Chkhaidze, created in 2005-2018, show that the era of neoplasticism and suprematism, begun in 1910-1920. Mondrian and Malevich completed. They note that having created the “Entry into the Light” picture in 2013, which gave the name to the exhibition, Omar Chkhaidze broke out of Malevich’s “black square”, personifying Darkness, into Light, which is the substance of the Universe - and began to write only Light, only vibration of spiritual light.

For this discovery, the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences awarded Omar Chkhaidze the gold medal of Peter Kapitsa, and the European Academy of Natural Sciences - the Wilhelm Leibniz medal.
