Kakabadze’s creative work does not expose any precise style, it reveals his talent and mastery and his deep faith. He does not work in a canonical painting style.

Despite his deliberate generalization of the form he is very accurate with the details and symbols. In some of his works Kakabadze includes inscriptions in Georgian thus merging pictorial and verbal languages that reveal even more significant and sincere meaning to the audience.  Kakabadze’spainting are protected in Georgian and other countries private collections.
