Life Events

Painting is my passion and life!

I was born in ancient, beautiful and artistic city of Plovdiv, Bulgaria. I carry its creative spirit and energy with me everywhere! There were also my first exhibitions and appearances as a creator.

I graduated from the Art school in Plovdiv and then graduated Academy of fine Arts in Sofia, majoring in painting in the class of Prof. Nikolay Maystorov.

Now I work and live in Sofia, Bulgaria.

I have experience in many fields of art – painted animation, illustrations, graphic prints, performance art and installations, visual poetry. I love synthesis and overflow between the arts. Apart from painting on canvases I like drawing body art and enjoy painting on human body.

I love experimenting with art. It is hard to get into any frames.

I have 15 solo exhibitions at home and abroad, participation in general exhibitions.
