artist Steliyan Steliyanov


Steliyan Steliyanov – Mr. Stu is contemporary artist graduated from the National Academy of Arts – Sofia, Bulgaria, section Woodcarving. He works in the visual arts sphere where the specter of his interests is very extensive, for example sculpture, instalation, furnitures, accessoaries for the home and the humen body. He also develops a private school of arts. It is located in the studio where he works in order the students to experience a real creative environment.

The elements he includes in his works are of the hyperrealism, symbolism, primitive, minimalism art movements. Some of his works are inspired by the elements of the present day– people, society and social issues, yet combined with his work conception and symbolism in the detail. In other cases his works are provoked merely by situations, moods, conversations, spontaneous sketches, etc.

Whatever art piece he starts making he tries to make it attractive and fine in detail. Because his moto he starts work with every time is that for the beauty time does not exist.
