---------

My works are owned by private collectors in many countries and by the Bulgarian Artists’ Union.

I work in the fields of textiles, collage, painting, fashion, advertising, computer graphics, mural, the game industry /2007-2011 - GAMELOFT and UBISOFT/ and in the fields of teaching drawing and fine arts.

In 1993 I started a private school of fine arts, which is now one of the leading private schools in Bulgaira / Studio S – www.studios-edu.com / and now there is not only drawing, but many other educational disciplines . From 1912 to 2020 I devoted  my activities to expanding the school, creating new affiliates and not much time was left for my own art. 

But things kept going on in my head. My sketchbooks, and notebooks from those years are full of ideas, concepts for paintings, installations, sculptures , projects , etc.  Already so much have accumulated, that had to come out of my notebooks and by 2021 I could no longer resist and devoted myself to creativity again. 

Now I paint every day and I can't stop.

And following the chronology of time, I must say that in 2023 I founded SNOWLIKE STUDIO training center - art classes, indoor skiing and snowboarding and other training in the Chicago area - www.snowlikestudio.com

 

STATEMENT OF THE ARTIST 

I have been painting ever since I remember myself. I was happier with my creative work prior to starting to ask myself the question: Why do I do it? Each attempt at a rational reply to irrational desires is always a hardship. And yet, the passion itself in painting suggests me that creative work saves me from the mechanized spiritlessness; it provides me with possibility to create my own worlds and feel authentic.

I feel painting as the most complete opportunity to have polemical dialogues with myself, to unite time and space in colors and figures; to recreate my dreams with eyes open; especially in the sleepless moments of dawn. I try to analyze and summarize emotions, to look beyond the apparent.

The means of expression, which can be said to creep into almost all my work are passing, intertwining between worlds, dematerializing the material, creating a rhythm in chaos, and sometimes, depending on the mood, chaos in the order.

I feel that in my paintings I seem to find the most accurate place of man, torn between his primary nature and the imposed social conventions. Art helps me to intuitively explore the human connections between words and thoughts, and to distinguish the consequences of actions. I am happy to be able to recreate in tones and lines the existential marks of existence - those "marks" which we leave behind in space and time.

I am of the opinion that in my photo collages, intertwined as fabric /that is why I consider them as textile works/, I show the complex relationships between man and his being. My works are completely subject to the idea of multi-layered transition through the complex spectrum of moods, emotions and experiences, "intertwined" in all-embracing compositions.

The conviction that the path to a complex universe, expressed through metaphysical expression, leads to the discovery of light and hope, despite the often dark background nuances of being, stimulates me. By combining space and worlds, I want to achieve a metaphorical passage through the gates of time. In my works, the presence of nature and man is a whole which carries an optimistic charge, despite the existential doubts that permeate us often and deeply. The actions and gestures in my works are symbolic, subject to the emotional dialogue broadcast, I hope, by my works. Through the imaginary absolute in the approach and expression I put next to each other abstract in nature as impact and perception modules and details which build up the essence of each of my works.

The very process of creating and building up the fabric of the works carries my specific handwriting, which in a lot of cases is captive to textiles and the textile way of thinking.

This approach creeps even in my digital works. And digital painting is a complete happiness for me. It does not depend on place, space, time, materials. I can paint anywhere, anytime, and I do it.
