A day in pictures

“Breakfast in the atelier” is the title of the exhibition of painter Atanas Hranov. The slow wind of nostalgia and the longing from his previous works are substituted by suddenly opening unexpected crevices in the space by a single stroke of the brush or suggested by the partial lines of a shape of buildings and human figures. The breakfast in the workshop of the mind of the artist is an attempt to overcome oblivion and weariness, to rekindle the flame of faith, to retrieve the chime of words and offer us the gift of brightness.
