Nikolay Aleksiev is an artist who gathered together the volcanic energy of the immense imagination with the exquisite modeling of the detail. Unparalleled and original, recognizable from the earliest appearances to the viewer, he studies love with matter, examines it thoroughly, examines ways to perfect the traditions of a long experience with the audacity of new suggestions. They seem to spontaneously pop out and create a whole body of forms and color, unexpected, surprising and at the same time arranged in the harmonic rhythm of classics. Abstract or figurative composition, regardless of the plot, style is the absolute way to see things in the special light of the author's gaze - mystical but real, spatial and decorative, endlessly recreating the possibilities for a richer, more tangible, deeper experience of the messages of art.
Nikolay Aleksiev is born on April 9, 1953 in the city of Sofia. He is Associate Professor at the Department of Books and Print Graphics, discipline illustration at the Bulgarian National Art Academy.
