Samuil Stoyanov is a Bulgarian visual artist. Following his first solo show of oil paintings, he has since worked in a variety of media treating multileveled subjects of the day. He approaches and investigates aspects of the topics he is interested skeptically and often by means of a sharp irony. Recent work deals with how visual art is related to the image and whether art is not a matter of what that happens in the space between the viewer and the work. Some of his latest solo shows are Reverse, Contemporary Space, Varna, Bulgaria, 2017; and Evening News, Formatokomodo Gallery, Madrid, Spain, 2014. He has participated in a number of international group shows such as The 5-th Moscow Biennial and Sofia Contemporary Festival in 2013 and the 53th October Salon, Belgrade in 2012. As the 2009 BAZA Award winner, he had a solo show at the ICA-Sofia Gallery. He was also the winner of the Bulgarian RUF Award in 2011. His work was represented in Frieze Magazine by Nedko Solakov in the 2011 anniversary issue and in 2012 was included in The Bulgarian Nouvelle Vague – a book published by Edno Foundation.
