1 – 23 February 2023
Dimitar Petrov presents his latest paintings from February 1 to 23.
The artist is known to the public for his bright and colorful paintings, in which he conveys his inner states and subtle emotions. His works, which are between the abstract and the figurative, leave the public to experience and complete the picture for itself. His canvases bear the mark of his mastery of the oil painting technique, with his characteristic overlays and accents.
His works are sincere and poetic, and the bright colors in them inspire passion, immersion, lightness, freedom… As the author himself says, his paintings “radiate a spiritual presence that passes into the viewer” and creates a feeling of joy and harmony.
