    About

    Short bio:

    Rumen Petkov was born in 1955 in Popovo, Bulgaria. He graduated from the University of Veliko Tarnovo in 1980 and moved to Kazanlak. He is a member of the Union of Bulgarian Artists and has had more than 30 solo exhibitions.

    Artist statement:

    “The beams of the sunrise caress the shapes and slowly reveals their beauty and new colours. In my childhood, this fountain scattering colourful drops flooded the forest, the fields, the houses and the people I saw.

    This fountain still continues to colour my every encounter with nature. I am a spectator and a participant in a process in which the beauty of this world creates new images that give wings to inspiration.

    The painting is an attempt to preserve the transient beauty of life and an opportunity to start a new friendship. The movement of the brush gives birth to a fairy-tale world and this magic is fascinating. It surprises me every time, it charges me with curiosity and shows me unknown lands.

    Paintings allow us, whenever we wish, to enter into their world of reflections and feelings, full of the vitality and eternal youth of the emotion. I am happy to be close to the world inspired by the colourful lights of my childhood dream. I am happy I can draw it and share it with friends, I can show my paintings and sculptures and start a dialogue.” Rumen Petkov
