STOIAN – ATANASOV VALKOV

Stoian creates an artist’s interpretation of the “Fate of the Gypsy” through a collection of sculptures, paintings, reliefs, drawings and sketches. Each unique resemblance exudes a mysterious lifestyle and nomadic existence from a segment of society that travels in the shadows of urban Europe. The use of bold sizes, shapes, media, color, patinas and finishes all blend together to project Stoian’s history which mimics that of his subject matter. Born in a small, communal Bulgarian village, raised by working class parents, sketching and painting throughout his school years, progressing to the University of Poland where he gained an exceptional education in fine art as well as an opportunity to teach, and then traveling to the United States to pursue his love for the arts have greatly expanded his experiences, peaked his imagination and readied him for a position in modern art history.
