Yavor Kostadinov


I work mainly in the field of painting. I believe that it is my true calling. I often like to experiment and I am still searching for a direction to call my own. I`ve also had experience to some extent with both printmaking and sculpture. And recently I've also developed an Interest in the field of illustration, digital painting and new media.
