I am a Bulgarian-born Canadian visual artist and independent design professional living and working in Montreal since 1993. I hold a Masters in Fine Arts and Design from the National Academy of Fine Arts of Sofia. After twenty-five years of artistic practice across Europe in fields related to public art and the integration of the arts in architecture, my interests have led me to pursue further specialization in computer graphics and digital arts.

In my work, I am interested in a visual discourse combining physical realism and poetic imagery. Instead of training my eye on different objects, I prefer to examine a single object from all its facets until a new angle is discovered. Then, through analogy, the new idea is reinforced.

My images superpose viewer expectations by always providing an immediate meaning while also offering an intended second-degree subtext.

The viewer engages in a substitution exercise beyond the figurative object towards a new frame of mind. It is the viewer’s role to reinstate that interpretation.

3D imagery and other digital mediums are ideal for me because of their ability to bring the real and the imaginary into direct contact.

I seek a visual discourse combining physical realism and figurative imagery in order to critically engage the viewer. Through my work, I attempt to communicate with the audience within a broader multicultural context. Through playful analogy, I aim to interpret our daily condition.

My research runs up against limits and seeks to transgress them by taking the risk to step out of the conventional framework to open new territories. This approach has led me to receive many prestigious awards and recognition worldwide.
