Cold Irony stands in the obvious wordplay between hot/cold, iron/irony. It speaks of how seeming contradictions can be two sides of the same coin, and how complexity can not be simplified. The iron as a household tool is used to “iron out” creases in clothes just like how labels “iron out” our mind. In this manner the iron is transformed into a tool for marking ambiguity, which serves the human need to label.
With Cold Irony I express my ironic attitude towards categorization, as a method that hinders human imagination.

Based in Sofia, Bulgaria, i work with various subjects of the day often with the means of sharp irony. The iconography I use possess harsh and critical imagery. It’s all about stakes, skills and storyteling. Figurative contemporary art with a fine touch of social message, humor and artist condition message. When are we more sincere - when we lose or when we win? I examine the personal and the external, the conscious and the unconscious reducing the distance between the portrait and the self-portrait, the present and the past. Tracing the changing attitude towards the themes of freedom, carelessness, responsibility, guilt.
