Why did you pick this picture?
This is a drawning from the period when I began to work really hard on my art and the drawings started to have a real meaning for me.
Where did the idea for this art come from?
Actually, there is a personal story behind this. The caption says ‘Body Talk’. With this I wanted to say that most people aren’t interested in your personality but in your appearance. When you aren’t in good shape, people are mean and they laugh at you. Then something changes and you look good, you are proud of your body. After that everyone who has laughed at you suddenly decides that wants to be your friend and to hang out with you. That is what this
What does this art mean to you?
It doesn’t let me forget that there are people who are trying to be by my side because they love the way I look now, who only see my ‘shell’. And also there are people who actually see my inner beauty. I think the most important thing is to have a beautiful soul not only a hot body.
What can you tell us about yourself?
I am 18. I am from Bulgaria. When I was 3, my parents and I moved to Spain where we lived for seven years. I dream to travel round the world and to see every single place on Earth, to meet new people and cultures. I’m an ordinary teen and I like having fun. I want to study software engineering and to work as a software engineer someday. This way I ‘ll be able to share my art and show it to the world, inspire people and do something significant in life.
What more can you tell us about your art?
Well, I’m still not as good as I want to be and I have to practise a lot. I’ve been drawing since I was able to hold a pencil. However, Kristina Webb is the person who really inspired me and influenced my art. At first, I just copied her drawings, but as time passed I started drawing things which had meaning to me. When I draw I want to share something special to me but it can mean something completely different to someone else. When you look at my drawing at first you may see nothing too special but if you take some time to read the caption and look at it again you will find a part of me in it. It tells a different story to different people. When I start drawing I feel like bringing the sheet to life. That is why art is so special to me. I also love making art for my friends. Their smiles when they see the final product make me extremely happy and motivate me to make more art every day.
