Painting in the presence of visitors to the Kvadrat 500 atrium on 25, 26 and 27 September, from 12.00 to 18.00
Kvadrat 500, The Wall.
‘The Wall’ is the latest project of the National Gallery, which aims to present graffiti artists. In the atrium of Kvadrat 500, among the sculptures of the permanent exhibition, artists invited by the National Gallery will create their works on a specially designated wall.
The style and bright colouring of the compositions realised in suitable sites in the urban environment are the arguments on which the curatorial choice of Nikolay Petrov – GLOW being the first to face ‘The Wall’ in Kvadrat 500, is based.
Nikolay Petrov was born in Sofia in 1988. He graduated in Advertising Design from the National Academy of Arts. Over the past 10 years he has worked as an independent artist and designer, and has participated in scores of graffiti art festivals and in a number of group exhibitions in Bulgaria and abroad. His graffiti can be seen in Sofia and other Bulgarian cities, in Thailand, the United States and in over ten European countries.
In recent months, GLOW has completed his project as part of the Guerilla Art Fest in Priština, Kosovo, and has curated and taken part in Sofia’s first Graff Express Festival.
