About Kiril Katsarov

I’m a contemporary artist born in Sofia, capital city of Bulgaria in 1977. Since my early age I knew that my destiny is to create art. I have a master degree in Fine arts from the National Academy of Arts in Sofia. My passion to art leaded me to the world of advertising where I executed many AD campaigns for international clients. At the same time I started to develop myself as an independent contemporary artist.

The style of my artworks is a colorful mix of fantastic themes, abstract geometry with surrealistic and pop art elements. I prefer to work with oil, acrylic and collage but I use also some graphic techniques and digital art. My conceptual projects are created as real metaphors of today’s world experimenting with media, symbols, text and meanings. If I have to define myself I would say that I’m a true researcher of modern times. In my carrier I have more than 20 solo & group exhibitions and art projects in Bulgaria, Germany, Italy, Great Britain and Czech Republic. I have also a strong interest in video art.

Some of my most significant projects are “A place for your Ad”, “Work International”, "X-ray Journey", "Digital still life" and “Sport Unlimited”.
