I was born in Bulgaria in 1968.

Since 1998, I have been living and working in San Francisco, California. I use mixed techniques, oil paints, acrylics, tempera, watercolors, and markers. In my painting, I search for the subtle balance between the old masters and modern art.

“My art style is based on the theory of chaos.”

“Everything came out of chaos, and becomes mathematical laws of perfection. Similarly, in my art, paint explodes without control, colors of nuclear explosions, variations of vibration, light running out of space ad time…and then the lines travel like rivers between the mountains to organize and control the madness of these flowing colors.

My art is based on the idea unus-mundus, one world, the visible and invisible world together. The air space around us is filled with invisible life. In science we already know of eleven dimensions, yet we cannot explain all of this. For us it is like magic, but day after day many new or very old forgotten wonders are coming to us, opening new doors of knowledge. One day we might wake up and find out that all those legends from history; all those fiery tales and mythology, are truth.

According to quantum physics, there are so many different laws that are totally new fields of the Para physic. This amazes me. The universe created in my paintings belongs to those Para normal laws. I am searching for a world without borders. I organize color and line in a way that helps me find the subtle balance between realism and abstract, to touch the border of the world here and beyond; past, present and future.

I am looking for a new space and new time...infinity on canvas.”
