Atanas Botev

Brief info

Atanas Botev's work synthesizes history, the artistic streams, and the ideologies of the near and distant past, and redefines them, actualizing their meaning today, and confronting the political, the public and the social context. His hyperrealistic work is a simulation of collage, where interests in popular culture, comics, films, as well as art historical references, placed in a new organic whole. His work has been shown in solo exhibitions, most recently in 2014, at the National Museum of Montenegro - Gallery Miodrag Dado Djuric, Cetinje; Prima Center, Berlin; and the National Gallery of Macedonia. Group exhibitions include: The Essence of Existence, The National Museum of Montenegro, Cetinje, 2016; The Essence of Existence, Gallery Lauba, Zagreb, 2015; Transfiguring, Czech Centre, Prague, 2014; SKOPJE URBAN STORIES: Skopje between Science and Fiction; City Lab Project, Skopje, 2011; the 2011 and 2010 International Festival, Madrid; Identities; Biennial of Young Artists, Kosova Art Gallery, 2009; Creativity and Disaster, Weil Gallery, Corpus Christi, TX, 2008; among other exhibitions in Bulgaria, Serbia, Albania, Holland, France and New York.
