Light, pastoral landscapes, a combination of opposites - we find all this in the exhibition of talented Bulgarian artist Kostadin Zhikov in the Millennium Gallery in Sofia Already familiar to the Bulgarian audience with yet another exhibition of his - "8 men for March 8", this time he invites us to look at the natural world around us through the senses of the artist. 

Zhikov also draws inspiration for his latest works from the inimitable colours and images of people from the Bulgarian countryside, characteristic of the painting of one of Bulgaria's greatest painters - Vladimir Dimitrov-Maistora.

Amber melody
The main task in the work of the young artist is to unite opposites into a harmonious whole. Therefore, it should not surprise us that in the paintings from the exhibition "Natural Vibrations" we find landscapes from the Belogradchik rocks to... the Himalayas. The energy that Zhikov transmits to those tempted to stand in front of his 60 canvases until June 14 this year is also important.
