Paintings and Ties
The first of its kind exhibition is opened today in the National Theater "Ivan Vazov" in Sofia. The canvases of the world-renowned Bulgarian artist Pavel Mitkov, dedicated to theaters from different cities, will include the author's necklaces of the designer Georgia Racheva from Gabrovo. On the eve of World Theater Day, the authors chose to show alternatively but also that when a person really values a theater, he can bring it to his heart ... literally!
The exhibition "THEATER - Close to the Heart" collects 13 paintings, each of which depicts a theater from Bulgaria or from the world. Ties are installed on the sails as the foundation on which they are painted. The combination of neckties, canvases and paints has the theoretical purpose and the authors give freedom for interpretation: on the one hand, it is a bold art installation, on the other - the tie element is close to the everyday, representative and formal part of the clothing. The applicable part - the necktie "holds" part of the theater after it is painted on this installation. So each painted tie is part of this theater, and when you wear it - the theater is close to your heart!
The artist Pavel Mitkov was born in 1977 in Sofia. He started to work hard at the age of 15. Besides Bulgaria, he has exhibited in Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Turkey, USA, Austria, Hungary, UAE, Greece, the Philippines, Poland and others. His paintings are present in the collections of many famous people, such as Russian President Vladimir Putin, Belgian king Albert II, late Pope John Paul II, Pope Benedict XVI, former mayor of Moscow Yuri Luzhkov, Hillary Clinton and others.
The designer Georgiya Racheva is an architect by profession. She is 25 years old and creates elegant neckties with a sense of detail, unparalleled style and personality. The idea of stylish ties appears suddenly - like the author's hobby. She tells them they are "models, a business card of her personal style".
The joint project, called with the poetic title "The Theater - Close to the Heart" and uniting two types of art, which in turn reflects the third - theatrical, will be shown in the spaces of the iconic cultural institution of Sofia - Ivan Vazov National Theater.
