Biography

 

I am a Bulgarian-American artist based in New York city. After spending 10 years as a digital sculptor and painter for George Lucas in Northern California, I gave up my 100K a year job as a commercial artist and moved to New York.

I consider myself a part of the idea generation and the fast pace that comes with technological innovation. I control every aspect of my work, including photography, video and web. In contrast to that, I use a very archaic way of drawing with dip pen and ink on paper, a technique that dates back to the reed pens of 3000 BC.
