Animator, graphic designer, illustrator and multimedia artist, from Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
I was born in Kjustendil, Bulgaria in 1968 and graduated stage decoration, animation, and make-up at Plovdiv’s School of Scenic Arts. I obtained a Master degree in Graphic Design from the National Academy of Arts in Sofia. I worked first as a poster and graphic designer in Sofia, designing posters for many Cultural institutions there, as National Palaca of Culture, many theaters, French institut, and Soros center for the arts.
I moved to Montreal in 1999, following an invitation to work in the “booming” multimedia industry there. Following my work for many commercial sites, mostly for the fashion and retail industry, i created the experimental design and animation site “Mortadellatv”, which won more than 100 awards and mentions all over the world.
Totally by chance i became animation filmmaker with for the National Film Board of Canada, with films such as Vertical, The Man Who Waited, Tower Bawher, Tzartitza, and Drux Flux. Lately I created live show multimedia and promo animations for the British band Public Symphony and David Gilmour’s “In an Island” album and live tour, and the illustrations for Chris Robinson’ book “Ballad of a Thin Man: In Search of Ryan Larkin” (2008).
The “text-image” collaboration with Chris Robinson continued in the animation film “Lipsett diaries”, produced by Marc Bertrand at the National Film Board of Canada (2010)
