ALBENA

​I am a French artist born in the city of Sofia, in Bulgaria, I am also an architect, a poet, a graphic designer. I create mainly oil paintings on canvas or wood. When I was a little girl, I dreamed of being an artist painter or a writer and make people experience deep emotions while interacting with my work. As I was interested in many other subjects, I did long studies, published a book of poems and finally became an architect; I worked for 5 years in that sphere, mainly for bank offices. When I changed my country at the age of 29, I left all behind and started a new life in France, I became gradually a self–employed, self-taught artist. My work is all about capturing love, tenderness and beauty in life. My favorite media is oil. I have worked a lot to create my own special technique oil on canvas by several layers, I use about ten successive layers for most of the paintings. I try to capture the magic of life, thus bright vibrant colors are absolutely necessary for me. I started reading at the age of 3; my inspirations come from all the wonderful fairy tales’ books with illustrations by Bulgarian or international painters that I read in my childhood – and all my life experiences afterwords; the world mythologies and cultures. That is why people of very different origins find themselves in my paintings and this is the greatest reward for an artist.
