The elements of the visible world for the artist are objects of creative interpretation. Sensibly perceived, they create plastic and stylistic solutions. The very choice of objects already contains the artist's attitude. And the plastic expression carries and sends its messages.

Ivan B. Ivanov is one of the artists with a desire for encyclopaedia. He works in the field of graphics, painting, monumental arts. He has published a book of travel notes from his many travels around the world and a book of memories of artists and interesting meetings.
The paintings in the exhibition were made during the last few years, mostly abstract, in very large formats and in smaller - cycle "Genesis", "Crystal" and others. Several portraits are also presented.
The author will display 60 works from different periods - in imaginary colors, different frames and structures. Behind each picture is a thematic cycle, never left alone. But do not repeat. "I love to struggle. I would not respect myself If I make again and again the same picture. I continue the cycle with other materials and other techniques. Every time I search for another key at the beginning of the peta."

The history of artists in Blagoevgrad began in 1956, when Dimitar Mihailov, Argir Marchev, Stalio Stalev and Georgi Nozharov established the first Association of Artists in the City.
The first major exhibition of the Society, which involves only authors from the city, was opened a few years later, on February 6, 1962.
It is extremely important that the activity of the artists of Blagoevgrad has been growing in recent years. There are two schools of art which contribute the progress of art in the Blagoevgrad - the artistic classes at the High School “St. St. Cyril and Methodius" and the subject “Fine Arts” in the Southwest University in Blagoevgrad. This leads to the continuity between the artistic generations, proven by the presence of more than 60 active artists in the city of all ages.

Among them are the dignitary names of Boris Denev, Vassil Stoilov, Lyuben Zidarov, Rafael Mihaylov, Yanaki Manassiev and so on, who set up the foundations and the high artistic standards of cultural life on a regional and national level. Nowadays the Representation prides itself on a multitude of artists whose works compile in continuity with modern forms of expression and creative communication.
