Pleven's artists - 70 years artistic life

10.10.17 - 30.10.17 | Gallery of UBA "Shipka" 6, Sofia

Opening - 10th of October, 6 p.m.

Organized art life in the city of Pleven is a phased process that has been going through all vicissitudes with an ever up-to-date mission and stance. Until 1944, representatives of the first and second generations of academically trained Bulgarian artists used to live and work in Pleven including Angel Spassov (1884-1974), Hristo Boyadzhiev (1912-2001), Nikola Zlatev (1907-1989), Sidonia Atanassova (1909-1994), Dilo Dilov (1914-1984) and Hristo Krastev (1917-1982). At its pre-organized stage, art life in Pleven was fairly limited – artists were teachers, none of them owned a studio except for Angel Spassov who built one on his own, and there was nothing like exhibition events. Angel Spassov was the pioneer of Pleven artists. Educated in Sofia together with Vladimir Dimitrov Maistora he dedicated his life and creative career to his home city.  Many of the artists who would appear on the stage of art in the 1960s and 1970s took their first lessons in his studio.
