SHORT BIOGRAPHY

ABOUT ME


I am born and raised in Bulgaria. In the 90's I moved to Austria and studied at the Academy of Fine Art in Vienna. First for the Professor Joannis Avramidis and then for the Professor Michelangelo Pistoletto.

In 1998 I took my MA degree and that same year I moved to Sweden and until 2012 I lived and worked in Uppsala. During that time I participated in numerous exhibitions in Scandinavia, throughout Europe and in the USA. My Art were awarded with several Prizes.

In the summer of 2012 I moved back to Austria and now I live and work in St. Pölten. From here I exhibit my Art abroad. Sins beginning of 2022 Guest-Lecturer at the Academie of Fine Arts in Carinthia, Austria

My fascination of the human beeng is driving me to discover and interpret the greatness of the human soul.

Artist Statement

I work with Painting, Sculpture and Photography. During the years I have been working with a numerous of public projects and have exhibited my Art in several countries like: Denmark, Germany, Austria, Norway, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Italy, Spain, USA , Sweden, Russia, Ukraine, Georgia, China and others.


I have always been fascinated by the Human being. I see the Human body as a canvas, where the soul paints its own stories. So I see my role as an Artist to discover this stories and interpret them. I do that both imaginary - realistic and expressive - abstract. I express myself through Metaphoric compositions, Portraits, Still-lifes and Landscapes. I am looking for the human presence and absence in my works. By working mostly with models, I am trying to discover the inner story printed on their bodies and their faces.
