In the exhibition Lyubomir Karaleev continues a theme he has been working on for a long time. In 2008 he presented his first exhibition "The Horseman", in 2015 - "The Horseman II".

The starting point in the exhibition "Horsemen" is a text from the book of Revelation (Apocalypse), the last book of the New Testament, written in the late first century). Lyubomir Karaleev connects the four horsemen of the Apocalypse with the time now, with the events since the end of 2018. "A time when waves of people driven out by famine and war were leaving their homes. A time when others lost their lives by fire or at sea, almost reaching the land promised to them. Time of explosion-ravaged villages and towns. A time of disease that kills millions of lives. Time of Apocalypse ... ", he writes.
