About me

Hello, my name is Kostadina Nacheva. I am a freelance artist and a marketing manager based in Sofia, Bulgaria. I am a creative with unique experience in the business and artistic domain, with a passion for color and and the design of an engaging visual experience. I create vivid abstract art – textured oil paintings in fresh bursts of color, small-format abstract paper collages, and unique jewelry.

I am focused on color and its influence upon the viewer, its ability to invoke a mood or a memory. I have found myself in abstract art because of its ability to hold multiple meanings; because it doesn’t represent literal objects, the piece itself is receptive to the emotions of each individual viewer. My art is a meditation and an expression of my inner world – both private and open to the viewer as a balance of colors. It is elemental and invites the audience to lean in an explore its tactile surface, while re-imagining its meaning though their own experiences.

I am an intuitive artist and a bit of a dreamer, but I am also a firm believer in hard work and structure. I rarely ever wait for the muse to strike, but instead I try to keep painting, letting myself come up with a great composition and a favorite work through the creative process itself. Inspiration comes from the love of painting!

My creative process is about expression through color and texture; it is focused on the ability of an abstract canvas to convey moods and evoke memories through the interplay of colors and strokes. My art speaks both of a very personal journey and of a universal emotional language that can be interpreted freely by the viewers themselves. Working with a palette knife allows me to add a tactile quality to my artwork, a three-dimensional sense of color that invites the audience to lean in and look closely.

Highly influenced by the work of impressionists and post-impressionists like Monet and Van Gogh, my paintings carry a similar love of color and light, of the passing of the seasons and the transient, yet eternal, beauty of nature. The canvases are intimate revelations, but at the same time they allow the audience to follow its own spiritual journey through the influence of the color palettes.

I am a dreamer, a bookworm, a traveler, a photographer, an a designer. I am often with my nose buried in a book – whether it is the latest installment of a fantasy series, a piece of modern fiction or a collection of poetry. I love exploring new places and coming back to long-time favorite spots. I have fun photographing details from nature and creating surreal portrait photo montages. I have experience and a keen interest in all things graphic design. In my little free time, I also like to dance salsa.
