      Wings fluttering through the window

      The joint project I Heard Wings Fluttering Through the Window, by Sophia Grancharova, Marta Djourina and Maria Nalbantova, started with an invitation from Ina Kancheva to the three finalists for the National Visual Arts Scholarship, Reaching for the Stars, to work together as a group and co-artists in creating a unified piece of work. The project is a conversation taking us through the transient fields of sleep. The amorphousness of sleep as a metaphor for memories and recollection.

    • Artist for one night? Why not

      Artist for one night? Why not

      The entrepreneurial family of Dani and Vladislav Zaharievi offers a form of entertainment they've called: Painting and wine for relaxation after the working day.

      The atmosphere is pleasant, and the location is convenient. Their studio is situated at 20 Galileo Galilei St in Sofia. A quality drink sparkles in an elegant glass next to the easel and the visitors decide on their own in what company they can spend a few hours in an atmosphere of creativity and without any tension. The value added for the client is that at the end of the evening they leave the place with a painting drawn by themselves.
