    Maya and her two rats are happily living in Sofia but she dreams that one day she'll move somewhere in the wilderness with a few chickens, a dog, a cow and a fast Internet connection. On another planet is also an option.

    Her real name is Živilė and she comes from Lithuania but she goes by the nickname Zveruna - like the pagan goddess of wild animals. While in Sofia she found herself at Petak bar and - what do you know? - now her illustrations are there for an exhibition.

    Even if you don't recognize his name, you've definitely seen his art around Sofia. Ivo is part of the 140 ideas graffiti crew that turns facades into huge artworks and last summer turned the seaside town of Ahtopol into an open gallery by organizing the We All Write festival.

    In how many syllables do you articulate the answer to the question "where are you from"? For him, it’s probably a little more complicated. His parents are of Bulgarian descent, but he’s lived only in Australia and was last here as a small kid. A photographer, an independent publisher, an experimenter with language and text, Alex is here for the World of Co. residency. Studio and living arrangements aside, an important chance it gives him is to meet the city, its’ people and past.

    Don't tell us - his dotwork art reminds you of that of Dido Peshev and Boris Pramatarov. It's not a coincidence. Both guys are in Trifon's list of favourite artists, together with John Dyer Baizley, Dan Hillier and Richey Beckett.

  • How important is it to have Structura

    11 January 2018

    text Natalia Ivanova

    We are surprised for a moment when we hear her saying that she is skeptical of contemporary art museums, but we quickly agree with the reason: "It must not be excluded as something extraordinary and extravagant but to exist as a part of the natural development of history." Maria Vassileva stands behind these words not only with her biography (she was the chief curator at Sofia City Art Gallery and the founder of the projects for young artists BASA, Place for Meetings and after 2010 of the Edmond Demirdjian Fondation), but also with her new gallery of contemporary art Structura.

    7 December 2017

    Once, years ago, he stumbled upon a topic about the font Cancellaresca in the Graphilla art forum. "Not long after I bought myself some materials and started trying to write like that." That's how we get to today when Galen's online addresses are flooded with calligraphy, as well as illustrations.

    30 November 2017

    He's from Varna, so naturally his relationship with the sea is a special one. As for art - he gets inspired mostly by terrorising dreams and real experiences, ocult rituals and the dark aspects of different cultures' folklore and mythology.

    23 November 2017

    Before we introduce him to you, take a minute (actually 13 minutes) to watch In-Shadow: an animated "journey through the fragmented unconscious of the West" that says a lot (withouth using any words) about everything that's wrong with today's world. And has an amazing original soundtrack.

    "I love those moments when it's so silent that you can almost hear music in the slightest sound. But also those when you feel the bass in your bones and you wonder whether something is degrading inside your body."

    As it is with every great love, she adores everything about graphics: from the dilution of the acid to the extraction of the last mark from the plate.

    “I like running and sweating, reading and sweating, standing in front of the wall and imagining what could happen if my wife let me… I like sleeping on my stomach and feeling my legs off the bed… I like bulldog and beagle who snore.”

    Her day goes well if she starts it off with orange juice. She also loves the calmness of the mountains, the freedom of riding a bike, the thrill before a trip and the sweet eyes of her black dog.

    The new and unknown gives her a warm, fuzzy feeling, so she packs her bags for long distance travel every chance she gets.
