Fine Art National School of Arts, Bulgaria

I studied Fine Arts, Graphics for ive (5) years in the National School of Arts in Bulgaria. Sculpture, Painting and Graphic were among our subjects. The teachers are well known in the Society of Artists. They have held many exhibitions of paintings in Bulgaria, Europe and USA. Acquired a third degree of professional qualiication in the profession Artist Applied Arts with a specialty in Graphics.

Linocut Linocut is a printmaking technique, a variant of woodcut in which a sheet of linoleum (sometimes mounted on a wooden block) is used for a relief surface. A design is cut into the linoleum surface with a sharp knife, V-shaped chisel or gouge, with the raised (uncarved) areas representing a reversal (mirror image) of the parts to show printed. The linoleum sheet is inked with a roller, and then impressed onto paper or fabric.

“Conversation with God� The linocut on the opposite page is also a linocut. It is one of three artworks, I produced for my Diploma work at the school of arts. The image illustrates a man, reaching out to the night sky. That is because when I look at the stars I feel like I am not alone and wanted to visualise the feeling. I chose to represent God via the stylised symbol between the clouds. The latter, I drew kind of hypnotic, to strengthen the feeling of a supernatural experience.


“A Look to the Promised Land� Another of the artworks, developed for my Diploma work. It is a combination of techniques, sort of a collage. The top part is charcoal, showing a prophet-like igure and the people looking to the Promised Land, having different reactions; including looking away. Bellow we see printed images of a rocky mountain and tracing paper, cut in a way to look like water. Water is a symbol for change, among other things.


Character development Personal Project

Bblob (the irst b is silent) is a character I created. It can be used in children's books, grown-ups' books, t-shirts, cups, hats, advertisement, etc.


Visual Identity University of Westminster

Logo, poster, e-invite, wall decal — for the “Signal and Noise” exhibition that took place in the Media, Arts and Design campus of my university. It was focused on the fuzzy boundaries between science and art. The cluster of letters represents the noise. Same with the unordered dotted lines on the card. The signal is the opposite - organised and clear.
