 OUR CELLS solo show
2024 March-April DOZA gallery Sofia 

Primarily working in the medium of painting, I enjoy experimenting with various approaches to enhance my visual language. My artistic practice extends to collages, drawings, sculptures, and digital projects. I often blend different styles, including surrealism, romanticism, expressionism, and pop art. The creative process for me begins with personal experiences and emotions, which become the central themes of my works. Through art, I aim to "lock in" specific insights and convey messages to the audience. My interests lie in exploring the relationship between humans and nature, travel, self-sufficiency, loneliness, and isolation. My paintings are frequently figurative, with the female figure serving as the main character in my compositions, often a form of self-portrait.
