    21 September 2017

    2-3 years ago he didn't even dream about knowing some of the best Bulgarian graffiti artists and look at him now - he draws on walls with them.

    14 September 2017

    He graduated from the art school in Troyan and later he spent a few years working in television. Then he decided it was time to go freelance.

  • 7 Moments of Sofia Dimitrova

    31 August 2017

    She loves dogs, has always dreamt of having a bath at home and is fascinated by the ability of our minds and bodies to regenerate. If she's not drawing, she's probably off somewhere in the mountains or on her bike. Or she's browsing through photo albums and watching movies. When she sits down to draw, however, she can't concentrate without music - mostly electronic.
  • 7 Moments of Hristo Hristov-Harp

    24 August 2017

    He loves basketball, bungee jumping, diving, riding his motorcycle, beer, tasty food, his hometown Varna and a thousand more things. Art is one of them as well, of course.

    17 August 2017

    Behind the graffiti tag stands Ricardo - a talented young person who first went to art school to learn how to make toys for children, then moved on to NATFA to study animation.
  • 7 Moments of Antonina Georgieva

    10 August 2017

    She loves olives, can't live without music and has dyed her hair the colour of the sea - again because of love. Her next passion is pretty obvious: as a kid Nina preferred to draw at home instead of playing outside. Nowadays that's actually her job.
  • 8 Moments of Diana Stoyanova

    3 August 2017

    She started sharing her art online less than a year ago, despite drawing since she was a kid. She's studying Graphic design but her heart really is in Illustration - something she does for a living now.
  • 7 Moments of Dessy Baeva

    27 July 2017

    Once she ate only pancakes for a whole year. Her obsession nowadays are essential oils - because "any problem can be solved with them".
  • 9 Moments of Kostadin Kokalanov

    20 July 2017

    "I was born in Cuba and I grew up in Nadezhda" - that's the short-but-catchy way he speaks. He's even better with words, though, when he writes them down freehanded. If you've been paying attention, you already know we've met him before: once with the typography/illustration project KKIIVV, and once with Trash Lovers - and ex collective that used to draw on people's garbage, turning it into valuable pieces of modern art.
  • 7 Moments of Mila Yaneva

    13 July 2017

    We first encountered her name next to those of Andrea Popyordanova and Viktoria Staykova in the art collective Chark. Then TI-RE came along - a platform for independent artists'editions, run by the same people (+ Veliana Ivanova).
  • 7 Moments of Elena Nazarova

    6 July 2017

    Devendra Banhart, Y La Bamba and of Montreal are the ones who play in her earphones all the time while Elena dreams of a house in the woods.
  • 8 Moments of Kaloyan Bogdanov

    29 June 2017

    Many of his first-times happened in Veliko Tarnovo: he was born there, that's where he studied sculpture and where he had his first exhibition.
  • 7 Moments of Borisval Gruncharov

    22 June 2017

    Or Boby Gruncha, if we look at the signature on his work, but the story behind the pseudonym is "I just liked it". Although he has a degree in Animation from New Bulgarian University, his paintings only moved once in a short film and in 2014 he went to Istanbul, where "I gave up everything and decided to paint."
  • 7 Moments of Lilyana Karadjova

    15 June 2017

    She's studied Philosophy, Photography and Art and nowadays she teaches at the National Academy of Art, writes for culture-oriented newspapers and magazines and is in the process of wrtiting three books at the same time. She never stops taking photos - mainly portraits - and in the last few years she's been quite into photographic experiments.
  • 8 Moments of Ilian Iliev

    8 June 2017

    We've seen him turn garbage into pieces of art (as part of the Trash Lovers collective), mix his illustrations with Kostadin Kokalanov's typography (together they used to be KKIIVV) and cut heads on the Planet Pops labels. 9 years ago he became part of the Ogilvy designer team, so that today he can be its creative director.
  • 7 Moments of Joseph Chernashki

    1 June 2017

    Two of his favourite things are long walks with a cup of coffee in hand and playing basketball. Probably that's why in his portfolio there's a whole series of posters of basketball courts where we can spot the distinctive style he's still polishing out with small projects every day.
  • 7 Moments of Jacklina Jekova

    24 May 2017

    Translated from Greek, calligraphy means beautiful handwriting but in reality it's much more than that. "An art and a way of self expression", calls it Jacklina and that's why she never gets mad if her hand trembles and leaves an irreversible mark on the work she's doing.
  • 7 Moments of Jo Iyaa

    18 May 2017

    Her actual name is Polina Stoyanova but years ago she was hooked on a fantasy book series that introduced her to the character Joiya. She liked the name so much she started using it as her own nickname.
