In Holy Week, creator Pavel Mitkov will paint the Seven Rila Lakes - The Spiritual Symbol of Bulgaria
Bulgarian artist Pavel Mitkov was quarantined in his home for 14 days and launched an online campaign "Draw Against the Virus – Let’s allay the Virus!". Every day, the artist gave live lessons on his Facebook page to anyone who wanted to touch the world of art. Mitkov showed innovative drawing techniques, including emblematic roosters’ paintings, water lilies and others. Over 7,000 people draw their own painting, and over 200,000 watched the lessons.
"My goal was to bring joy and good emotions in this difficult time for all of us and the fear to be overcome by art, by the beauty in human communication through drawing. Our society needs more positive news and emotions. ", says Pavel Mitkov.
The artist plans to continue his online Master classes and will soon be releasing an art product – System 5, which includes video tutorials with 5 instruments and 3 movements with them.
Mitkov Gallery in Karlovy Varycelebrates its 12th anniversary in a close friendly circle at a special meeting at the prestigious spa resort.
Pavel Mitkov's Autumn Paintings - Inspiration from the Light
like a strong, hot, cheerful love.
Yes, autumn is out, but my heart is racing
with delicate, warm autumn flowers.
Yes, guess my friend love is as strong as the golden season. "
The golden autumn carries a special charge and inspiration for the artist Pavel Mitkov, who skillfully blends the autumn colors in his paintings. Golden leaves, ocher, the smell of the past summer, wet streets, people with umbrellas - these are just a small part of the autumn scenes in his autumn paintings.
Pavel Mitkov shares his sense of autumn:
The feeling of autumn is a bygone period and a new beginning. I love fall very much and this is the time when it is not very cold and school has started. It reminds me of my childhood when it started to get dark earlier and we rejoiced because we were already going to go darker than the big ones.
Autumn brings a great inspiration to the artist, for which he says:
I just take the inspiration of autumn and collect it in myself. At one point, when I pull out the right sail, it pours over it.
The artist's autumn paintings do not carry nostalgia, by contrast. They are rich in colors - the yellow-orange range, the reds, the bright colors and carry the aroma of smoke from fire and leaves. All this is reflected in the paintings with autumn scenes by the artist Pavel Mitkov.
Rain and wet streets are a trademark of the artist, in which he displays his unique technique.
Pavel Mitkov about his sense of autumn:
It is as if trees and flowers collect all summer light and for some time in the fall they emit this light and shine on their own. They really shine and we should capture and store this light for the cold winter days. In this regard, autumn is not sad for me, but wise. It's a nostalgia for the coming summer, but in fact every season is the end and the beginning.
Welcome to the Mitkov Gallery, 7 Saborna Street (next to the Presidency) to touch the fall in Pavel Mitkov's paintings.
