The word kitsch and the word wall rug in our language are like two sisters. They run inseparably from one to another. It is so impregnated, so it is planted in our heads. That's why today we don't look with a good eye to wall rugs. They are thrown out of the garbage and stigmatized as stagnant.

The artist Nikolai Staykovski was born on 11th of May 1956 in Pleven.
A big part of his early print art works are spiritually and thematically related to the national cultural and historical heritage. The great past and its relics - Eneolithic ceramics and female "idols", medieval and Renaissance churches and monasteries, cities and fortresses, heroes and saints turn into inspiration and creative challenge for this outstanding master of the high-print engraving with a bright and distinctive handwriting.
Staykovski's work is bright and positive, highly professional, understandable and meaningful.

The thoughtful beginning is a hallmark of the work of Violeta Grivishka.
