The famous artist from Svilen - Alexander Petrov was born in 1929.
He graduated the High School of Woodworking and interior architecture. He met Zlatiyu Boyadziev and for four years he studied painting with him in Plovdiv. Then he began his path of growing up in the field of art.
Building on the foundation of her previous researches, the author freely and wittily commented the banal and vulgar. She outputs them to a level marked by extraordinary artistry, balanced sense of improvisation and subtle color. The new exhibition of Elena Atanasova enriches and develops the theme - a life so bright, rich and surprising, would not be the same if the artist do not materialize it.

Where the reading and looking are crossing
Mila Popnedeleva - Genova painted as she writes and writes like she is painting. In her books you can read not only the text, but also the pictures are telling stories. How to call the user of this product? Reader is not enough. Spectator - as well. The books evoke different senses, but require simultaneous viewing, listening and thinking. And that is not a usually watching where the mind follows the text, and then verify that the image repeated what is written. Not with Mila. In her books, writing and drawing are so intertwined that they blend into each other, keep each other and make us open our imagination.
The issuance of smart books today a luxury but of books for children – it’s over commitment. Mila Popnedeleva-Genova is doing it because of her inner desire and belief, but also as a blueprint against banality and visual illiteracy.
Opening - 19th of November, 4 p.m.
