Plamen Makov Artist Bio:
I was born in 1970 in Sofia, Bulgaria and I live here till today. I draw and paint since childhood and I work as a professional for the last 15 years. I graduated MFA in painting in the National Academy of Arts in Sofia, Bulgaria in 1999. In my youth and as a student I was mostly inspired by the painting from the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. Cezanne, Van Gogh, Matisse, Picasso, Kandinsky, Malevich are among the names that influenced my vision on art. For the last 15 years I am trying to elaborate my own language that can help me express what comes in my head and soul through the eyes. This search leads me in different directions. If I should point some emphasis in these endeavors It will be the power of the color and the simplicity of form and composition. My favorite technique is oil on canvas, because of its richness, deepness and plasticity. Sources of inspiration might be different - an object, a story, a situation - everything that life meets me with. Each of these sources evokes a feeling that takes form of an image inside me. The interesting part is when I have to grab this image and put it onto canvas in form of paint. It`s interesting and moving, because the image has little to do with the everyday appearance of objects or with the laws of decoration. The expected result of this effort to form the inside image in paint is a kind of sign - the exact sign of a certain experience.
