I've lived and worked in New York since 1991. I was born in Bulgaria and came to the the US by invitation of the Colorado International Invitational Poster exhibition. The organizers had seen my work and wanted me to participate in their show. After visiting Fort Collins, CO I went to New York and immediately found job as an editorial illustrator for the New York Times. I've lived in the Big Apple ever since working and exhibiting internationally.
5. Your Social Justice series ( www.clayandgold.com ) has some amazing colors so can you please walk us through how you created it and what is the meaning behind the design?
Color brings emotion to the work. I have that theory that if I want to express a clever concept I can do this in only black and white, but if I want to stir the feelings deeper, I need color. I usually use a limited for my posters. I think this helps the visibility and accessibility of the work. Every color contributes to the final impact of the piece. For example, in the Peace poster the innocent blue color emphasizes the irony of the image.
