The famous artist of fantastic stories, illustrator and cartoonist Petar Stanimirov presents his illustrations of The Ring of the Nibelung (Kibea Publishing House). The last 4th book of the series came out not long ago. The story based on the libretto, on which Richard Wagner composes his spectacular musical-dramatic epos. For four years, the artist created 250 illustrations on the story of the book, which is not exactly the same, written by the composer himself, but it is a not as grim and tragic version as the original is.

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.

Krum Damyanov presents his latest works at the Raiko Alexiev Gallery from 6th to 27th of October. The exhibition is a kind of proof of the author's love for the experiment with the form and the different materials. Having touched on everything that can be created, the sculptor now turns to the colorful aluminum from which he recreates his favorite heroes. Compositions and individual pieces will be shown - interpretations of favorites of the author's old themes and images as well as new ones.
The exhibition is on the occasion of the author's 80th anniversary, and with it he unfolds yet another aspect of his multifaceted talent, provoking viewers with his art, showing them a different look at the form and its sculpture.
