The contrasting portraits of Darina Georgieva

After graduating high school of Applied Arts in my home town – Sofia, I moved on to study Fine Arts, first in France and then in Belgium, before ending up doing my Masters degree in Spain, where I currently live and create.

Finding hidden forms with Alexandra Pospelova

I believe that for art to be effective, it should reflect skills and knowledge, communicate by inspiring feelings, and possess a sense of beauty.

By doing this I never followed art teachers instructions in school, threw paint on walls, created murals out of prints on abandoned houses… everything just had to be different. When I was 14, my mom decided it was time to...
