About Christo Kasabov

My name is Christo Kasabo - American, Bulgarian – born.
Contemporary Fine Art Artist, abstract expressionism, figurative surrealism.

I’m an artist who takes a journey to observe the relation between the conscious and the subconscious. The center of my artistic expression is the human being between his inner world and his external world. My works are fantasies, feelings, dreams, and the reality of impression, structure, movement or feeling. In most of my works I show the invisible emotional side of the human world or situation. Mysticism, longings, elusive and incomprehensible problems which inspire me a lot, that is obvious in most of my abstract, expressive, surrealistic works. I am explaining my work as: "Transformation of emotion" because it reminds me of transformation, emotion and movement / going further ... and this refers to my own artistic sensibility as an individual and at the same time complements the cultural processes in the world.
The above introduction will be incomplete without a visual presentation of my work. My website has comprehensive information:
