VENTSISLAV DIKOV
 
About his style: 
 
“The states of mind and the vast universe of the subconscious are an inexhaustible source for my creative laboratory. I explore the state, in which the mind empowers the body to create, inviting obscure objects inhabiting the subconscious to come to the foreground.
The connection between person and object can be as deep as the connection between people, maybe even deeper. Without verbal communication, only the essential remains - the person who feels and reflects. The object does not have to have a specific function to attract the observer's attention, on the contrary - the lack of a clear purpose triggers curiosity. Curiosity creates connection. Paintings have no meaning and purpose in themselves. The meaning comes when connection is established.

"Ventsislav Dikov's style is versatile - both figurative and abstract. The graphic aspect is also present in his work.
I am impressed by the purity of the drawing of the individual characters. The compositions are characterized by a rich variety of geometric and not so standard, bizarre shapes. In addition, the artist's handwriting stands out with an elegant, precise to perfection, graphic line. The set of listed elements draws the audience into the original, emotionally saturated universe of the artist, in which each of us travels subconsciously to other, undiscovered worlds."
