About The Artwork

They were my work shirt and an old glove. Now they are a living message. "Keep it alive" is a manipulated digital photography made with a previously created sculpture. The sculpture in itself was born in 2017 by recycling one of my work shirts and an old glove. The collage explores the necessity of continuous introspective attention to the human values and virtues in order to keep them pure, alive and ever florescent. Any our further extension will lead to our extinction. We need more content than advertisement, less futile products and more bright ideas to overcome our destructive nature and our loneliness with togetherness. Our planet could survive without us, but our kind is more threatened than ever by our unconscionable habits and our always short term "solutions", they come to us as a boomerang. Slow down production, reduce consumption, that way gain more time for reflection about how to use consciously our resources, how to distribute them, putting new technologies together with our millennial heritage creating more valuable content and virtues for the future generations. We need ideas for a long term solutions and the time is now. Extension vs. extinction. The only our possibility to survive is to slow down.

Bulgarian born artist based in Florence, Italy. The founder of the project Atelierseptem which is my constant search of expressive means united through various artistic disciplines. My unique wearable art pieces, textile art, raw painting, sculpture, photography, poetry, art&video installations are linked to each other, as parts of the whole process of creation. They can live and exist separately, they can be contextualized and decontextualized, but they are born in order to communicate a multidimensional mental and emotional exploration of an entire whole. My art - heARTbeat - the mother tongue of life is not an unconventional interpretation of a single word, it is the core of my activity. It pulsates through the oldest language in its most primary form - the root of all languages - the language of the heart. It's an inexplicable urge for existence. It is a magic, deep understanding without any need of proof. It's about seeing the unseen or hear the voice of silence, it's about the ability to recognize instinctively all that is authentic. It is primitive as our physical nature and beyond the limits of time as our spirit. It is charged with lots of symbols created in a spontaneous, often subconscious way, that’s why its meaning is perceptible as the soul is. As a winner of Sony Mobile contest "Lifeframes" I participated in the first world smartphone photographic exhibition curated by Steve McCurry, Milan, 2013. My wearable art pieces and artworks are owned by private collectors.
