14 June – 29 June 2006

Rakursi Art Gallery presents the first solo exhibition of Ivelin Bonev.

It shows 21 works in mixed technique. In his paintings the artist tries to achieve different suggestions by using varied materials in the same composition. The main idea concerns the development of a composition in the composition. The artist also tries to reach a stateliness by simplifying the form to a sign. Part of the works sound plastic and with their metal color create an impression for sculptures.
