Current Focus: Paintings by Hristo Mavrev

Born in the mountainous part of Bulgaria, Hristo Mavrev studied fine arts at the Neofit Rilski University in Blagoevgrad and then at the University of Applied Sciences in Athens. He was awarded the City of Maisons Laffitte Prize in 2017. His works have been exhibited in Greece by the M'Art gallery and the Cheap'Art salons and in Saint Germain en Laye. Hristo Mavrev willingly uses everyday materials, pvc, industrial paints, adhesive tapes, for an abstract revisiting of classical figurative pictorial themes. The works chosen by Bovard S.A. were produced in five countries over a period of twelve years.  From realism to the imaginary, the themes and inspirations vary according to his travels. The elements of nature - water, earth, air and fire - are constantly returning. Symbolism is alternately displayed or hidden in detail.
