A jubilee exhibition will mark the 80th anniversary of the birth of the artist Georgi Stoykov. The exhibition, including works of painting, watercolor and charcoal, will be presented in the “Rafael Mihailov” Exhibition Halls in V. Tarnovo and will be opened on November 24 at 5:30 p.m.
Georgi Stoykov was born on September 4, 1943 in the Veliko Tarnovo village of Rosno. He is part of the first graduating class of the Faculty of Fine Arts of VTU “St. St. Cyril and Methodius” in 1963-1967, and in 1971 his career as an assistant in Painting began there. The artist specialized in the Belgrade Academy of Fine Arts in Yugoslavia (1973) and the Leningrad Academy of Arts in Russia (1974). His achievements as a teacher in his 23-year career can be seen in generations of students realized as teachers and freelance artists.
Stoykov’s skills as an artist are evidenced by the works owned by institutions and private collections both in our country: V. Tarnovo, Gabrovo, Shumen, Kazanlak, Ruse, Razgrad, Sandanski, Lovech, Troyan, and abroad: Switzerland, France, Finland , Serbia, Russia.
Already in 1976-82, the artist verified in practice his conclusions in the exercises of pictorial composition with “two extremely inquisitive and creative courses” and in 2005 he summarized his long-term reflections, searches and personal findings about the complex process of composing in the book ” The pictorial space”.
“…the methodical approach of G. Stoykov has an indisputable contribution to the pedagogical practice of fine arts. With the depth of reading and the breadth of his knowledge, Georgi Stoykov is part of the rich palette of our respected colleagues. He gave his practical and scientific contribution to increase the quality of teaching in the Faculty of Fine Arts. The painting composition curriculum created by G. Stoykov forty years ago is an excellent theoretical base that gives quality results in the training…”, Associate Professor Marineta Mlyachkova writes about it.
