Krassimir Kolev
is an artist working with both traditional and digital media.
"In creating art the most important thing for me is to be able to communicate my ideas. What media I use depends on the project. For me the different media is like different tools or languages that is used to express a certain project in the best way."


I am born in Plovdiv, Bulgaria 1969 and I have made art as long as I can remember.
I started my education in art in Bulgaria, but 1991 I moved to Vienna, Austria to study at the Academy of Fine Arts. First I studied for professor Joannis Avramidis and then for Michelangelo Pistoletto.
I finished my Master of Art degree in 1998.
Now I am located in Uppsala, Sweden with my wife Lena and our daughter Matilda, who is adopted from China.

I believe that ART shall not only be beautiful but also meaningful. As I work, I think, and I want to share my thoughts with you and my public. That's why I use many different kinds of media, it depend on the character of the project. As you will notice I like to work with projects. During the work with a project I decide what kind of media I will use and in what way I will express the message or idea I want to share.
