Cerise Art Agency is delighted to present for the first time in London the works of two outstanding contemporary Bulgarian artists.
The Smithfield Gallery will host for one week only a selected collection of oil paintings by Diyan Dimitrov and sculptures by Dimitar Stoyanov. Accomplished painters and remarkable observers, they came to tell the story of their search for balance and harmony, and ultimately – the Elixir of Life. The beautiful tale takes us on an amazing journey where pain and bliss transcend from dream to reality, from past to present. We share and associate with their inspiration, visions and expectations admiring the power of their images. Their love of reflection, shape and colour stretches beyond the fragile frame of the human life and explores its existence wonderfully embedded with the nature. Humanising the animals and plants in their paintings is a further step in highlighting the role of the surrounding world as a friend, teacher and witness.
The exhibition is a rare opportunity for the London public to enjoy the works of Diyan and Dimitar and to mark their debut into the local scene. With their paintings and sculptures selling in many private collections in Europe, we are sure they will be well received in London.
Diyan Dimitrov was born in 1977 in Sofia, Bulgaria. He graduated the National Academy of Fine Arts and has been exhibiting mainly abroad, with most of his works being held in private collections. Diyan works in the field of composition, portrait and still life. An accomplished painter and astute observer, his paintings are his travel-log to the Modern day romanticism. Diyan works between London and Varna, Bulgaria.
Dimitar Stoyanov was born in Bulgaria and specialized in the field of miniature woodcarving and iconography. His works are deeply rooted in the Bulgarian culture and spirituality, which also provide a source of inspiration and beauty. As well as working strict to the tenets of the Bulgarian Ortodox Church, Dimitar has managed to transfer the essence of his philosophy to more contemporary and modern mediums.
The exhibition will take place at The Smithfield Gallery, 16 West Smithfield, London, EC1A 9HY from 22nd November until 28th November. Opening times 10am-6pm. Website http://www.thesmithfieldgallery.com
