Ognyan Kostov Kolev

Being an iconographer, my work is rooted in tradition. My creative process is extremely intricate and sacred; from the beginning with preparing the wood to the way the Biblical figures are depicted. After many years of writing icons, I have developed my own style of iconography that is based on Byzantine practices.

I first discovered icons in my paternal grandmother's missal and began writing them when I was fourteen years old; I began diligently studying drawing, painting and the centuries-old traditions of iconography with private tutors. Over time, my work has evolved and matured; I have tirelessly experimented with mineral pigments and other techniques like acrylic, oil and pastel, resulting in my current body of work. I prepare and then apply 24-carat pure gold sheets to my canvas, introducing acrylic in layers and with many glazes to achieve a lightness and atmosphere.
