Jivko Sedlarski

Sens de Bretagne (35), France
34 works

At the bottom of the country, immersed in the blue immensity of the ocean, a Bulgarian man creates the image of woman. For more than 30 years, Jivko Sedlarski has been inspired by one of the most picturesque regions in France, Brittany, whose coasts are bathed by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

He leaves Bulgaria in the hope of better professional achievement, but remains strongly linked to his country of origin. The Bulgarian artist works in the field of monumental sculpture, and his statues of women in metal dresses dress the French peninsula.

He studied sculpture at the National Academy of Fine Arts, then specialized in sculpture in Berlin. His first teacher was his father, Kolyo Sedlarski - painting artist. His attraction to art for Jivko is comparable to the air he breathes. Jivko expresses himself in different materials. All the help he needs to express himself, to create a work. During the Academy of Fine Arts, the artist needed to learn more about the human body. He joined the Academy of Medicine to attend the dissection to better understand human anatomy.

Each piece evolves in the space with which it is integrated into a unique choreography. However, and although autonomous, each figure evolves in the setting of the same ballet danced over and over again. Each new series is based on the previous ones and naturally enriches them. The whole is built, answered and spread like a family tree. A tree that stands out - a base or common thread - and draws all the sculptor's designs on paper as much as in the city, a tree that rereads the places, connects people and rewrites stories...
