Tsviatko Ostoich is known for his work in the field of graphic design, especially in the layout of the book. In this exhibition, however, it can be called a jubilee, because it follows the 60th birthday of the artist - we will see the other parts of his work. Together with the fine watercolors and drawings painted over the last 10 years, Tsvyatko Ostoich has for the first time shown his photographs.
Tsviatko Ostoich is one of the artists who do not find it necessary to name their work, to explain them further. In them we see nature with its tender power and dramatic states; we see the man's inner world, gently lifting the curtain to his thoughts. In that way the author leaves the viewer the freedom to understand the way shown and to feel closer to his emotion.

The exhibition "The Knight and ..." by Prof. Buyan Filchev includs works of digital graphics, unfolds in front of the spectator an imposing and impressive canvas that presents the last stage of his rich in achievement creativity. It is no accident that the slogan, which in itself increases the associative potential of the images, is open...
Balanced but at the same time extremely rich in various shapes, tones and elements sheets; compositions rich in fragments and auto-citations are like debris of a grandiose explosion. These debris seem to seek to reunite in the space of the exhibition hall in search of a complete and organic visual-plastic unity in which personal and global problems solved with a high-level style are inextricably interwoven with each other.
