      Artist depicts parts of himself

      Bloom is an exhibition that follows - in a way - that same thread of semantics and genre characteristics seen in Lyuben Domozetski's debut solo exhibition: this is the scientific illustration and the experiment with it. But it is exactly in these experiments, which are the centre of the exposition, that something new seems to be sneaking in, something different from the ones last year: namely, the human presence.

      Reflections in the mirror

      Ivan Kostov creates sculptures for architectural environments and architectural design. He studied ceramics at the National Academy of Arts in Sofia, from which he graduated in 1986. His works are module structures that he describes as meant to cause at a subconscious level “an exhilarating feeling of joy and satisfaction of what is happening in them”.

The format is special and challenging, symmetrical and open to interpretation. Set not only to commemorate this unprecedented year, but also born of the need to accept our limitations in order to find new ways to break and overcome them.

    • The needle's tip

      The needle's tip

      Emanuela Kovach, one of the most prominent Bulgarian graphic artists of her generation, presents her exhibition The Needle's Tip at the Museum Gallery Anel in Sofia. The title is not chosen accidentally. It leads directly to the engraving method of intaglio printing - “dry needle”, which Kovach has been using for many years. This is a method that takes us back in time - to the 15th century and to Albrecht Durer.
