For the first time to the Bulgarian public will be shown the set The Modern Saint, Portraits of Shame and Mythological First World Problems, and also the monumental photographs Human nature, Flight of Icarus and Modern Battle.
Sensitivity, performances and the attention to the details make him a true master of contemporary surrealism. The strong energy and original interpretations invoke associations with the best examples of expressionism.
