site.btaArtist Nasimo to Present Fine Graff Art Project at Vidima Gallery
Artist Stanislav Trifonov-Nasimo will present his project, titled "Fine Graff Art" in Vidima Gallery in the north-central town of Sevlievo on Thursday evening, the gallery manager, Sava Hristov, told BTA.
Stanislav Trifonov-Nasimo will meet Sevlievo’s audience with his new project in collaboration with fellow artists aimed at promoting contemporary modern art and its creators, Fine Graff Art (FGA).
FGA is inspired by the symbiosis of fine arts and graffiti and brings together young, talented, and established contemporary artists guided by common philosophical and aesthetic principles, which allows them to develop their art with no restrictions or censorship. This platform currently unites ten artists personally selected and invited by Nasimo. Their paintings and other artworks will be presented in the group exhibition. Besides Nasimo (graffiti, street art, murals, painting), the artists include Ivan Shopov (music, graphics), Elisaveta Angelova (painting), Nikolay Angelov-Gary (painting), Kamen Bonev (painting), Milen Balbuzanov-Milenist (calligraphy, street art), Gancho Ganchev-GANA (painting, murals), Pavel Kaloyanov-Epik (fine art tattoos and painting), Dimitar Iotov (painting, murals, illustrations), and Svetlozar Yankov-Sve (murals, painting).
Each of the participants in the project will present their own works made specially for this event. The FGA exhibition in Vidima Gallery will also include giclées, prints, albums, stickers, T-shirts, and other merchandise which visitors can buy to support the artists.
Stanislav Trifonov (Nasimo) is a Bulgarian graffiti pioneer. He was born in the northeastern city of Targovishte in 1979. He graduated in Painting at Veliko Turnovo University in 2003, where he made friends with Gary and Kamen. Nassimo is one of the most prolific and successful mural artists in Bulgaria and Southeastern Europe, and his works can be seen in nearly 20 countries on three continents. Most Bulgarians have encountered his artwork at least once, either in person when walking the streets of Sofia, in a photo on the Internet, or in a magazine. His best-known works are publicly available, but few people know that, similarly to other artists, he also paints on canvas, and he already has had seven solo exhibitions under his belt, the most recent one being at the Nirvana Gallery last year. His style is unique and easily recognizable. He combines both visually and technically the rebellious expression of street art and the subtle delicacy of traditional painting. His philosophical approach boils down to the exploration of universal themes and messages, timeless human values that are beyond politics, nationality, or religion and will remain ever relevant, the Gallery adds.
