Martin Petrov – Bulgaria – Painting


Martin Petrov lives and works in Pavlikeni. He has graduated in “Iconography” at “St. Cyril and St. Methodius” University of Veliko Tarnovo. He works in the sphere of painting, sculpture and wall-painting.

I’d like to show and share with the audience the ideas incorporated in my paintings. Every single form of art is a window through which you can look at the world refracted through the senses of our imagination. I present my world to you in a unconventional way, in which the most important question is “Why?”. This is a promising beginning that can reveal a unique reality and lead to something original.

I was born somewhere in the middle of north Bulgaria, enough years ago for my mature age.  I’ve been painting all my life but most often I work in the aria of wall-painting and sculpture. Mainly I have exhibited my works in a group shows with other artists from the region.

I can say that I’m on an endless journey where I chase views and ideas in order to visualize them in a different form of expression.

As I think it is a great thing for a man to travel on the waves of art, isn’t it?



Ritual art – Time and Space

Double Spiral

Martin Petrov


Time and space, theory of relativity, paradox of twins, quantum physics, razor of Ockham, bosons…there is a real danger of turning the theme into a boring lecture of some professor… but enough! Let us see the things with a smile, where space is not that boundless, but it starts from here to the other end of the school yard. Time has stopped, sitting on the bench under the lime three shadows, meditating in the silence of this summer afternoon.

During the evening Time and Space meet each other around the fireplace, they talk about dirty stories with a glass of drink in a hand, laugh with dreamy eyes. Little by little the world turns into a carefree double spiral…

At the end Time and Space leave this beautiful place and promise each other to meet again someday, here, in the yard of the school.
