Are there words to describe the power the sea has over humans? How can one list all the reasons it holds such a special allure for us? It is through the magic of the brush and pallet that we can experience all this!
The sea in Pavel Mitkov's paintings is a miracle in its own right. Waves seem to be conversing with each other and anxiously jostling to reach the golden sand. Quiet at times, rough at others, they are always brimming with verve and vitality and one can almost see them move and hear them sing their marvellous tune.
A true artist understands and can interpret the language of the sea.

This painting is included in Pavel Mitkov’s catalogue „Zen – Asia inspiration“ 2019. The storyline of the painting consists of three oil- bearing roses (Rosa Damascena – the well-known Bulgarian rose). The main element in the painting is the famous Bulgarian bridge in Koprivshtica “The first rifle”. Three typical for Bulgaria elements, that carry a massive energy load are presented on the canvas – roses, architecture from the national revival period, and gold. They are combined meticulously in a way that turns this painting into unique symbolic message.
When creating this canvas, the artist has used little golden sheets and golden dust. This was not just an esthetic choice, but a deliberate decision. Because the Koprivshtica region is rich in gold and the extract of the Rosa Damascena’s leaves – the rose oil, is often higher than the price of the gold itself. The bridge is a symbol of the transition from one world to another.
In the lower right corner there is a signature of the artist, together with the year of creating of the painting – 2018. In the lower left corner could be found the name of the painting.
