Svetoslav was born in Bulgaria, in 1974. Under the influence of his artist uncle, he started painting from an early age. Initially, art was inspired by nature and the warmth of the old Bulgarian houses. Later, as any young man, he felt rebellious and developed a passion for rock music and surrealism. He started painting professionally in 1992 and for the next 15 years he was dividing his time between playing keyboards in a rock band and painting. Svetoslav exhibited in a number of galleries in Bulgaria and most of the works are now part of private collections in various countries.
In 2007, he moved to London and currently live in the South West part of the city. He started painting again using his flat as a studio. His preferred media is oil on canvas and surrealism style.
With his art he is trying to bring out the beauty and delicacy of the world around us, and the magnificence of the human mind. He paints realistic features in an imaginary context. For the artist there shouldn’t be any rules and restrictions in art, but only freedom of thought.
