About

Yavor Kostadinov works mainly in the field of painting and drawind.He likes to explore the diferent possibilities of suggestion of the medium,which reflects in his works, some of which have a sharp and expressive character, while in others he seeks a more minimal, monochrome and syntisized approach. He works with the absurd, the grothesque sometimes combined with the ridiculous, often borrowing elements from reality, diferent dreams or associations of his,which he interprets in his own specific way. Another line of interest for him are works with an underlined social or political commentary. He also experiments with printmaking, digital print, objects and sculptural shapes.
