Miglena Yoncheva-Nikolova

Born in 1981 - Bulgaria


Miglena Yoncheva-Nikolova was born in 1981 in Sofia, where she currently works and lives. She studied visual arts at the Fine Arts University in Sofia, then painting at the National Art Academy in Sofia. The artist today works on painting, video, installation and sculpture.

A great observer, Miglena's creations are influenced by an urban perspective. She fixes boundaries and puts the light on the hidden image, an invisible detail. The artist doesn't paint landscapes or portraits, but there are areas and transitions where a mix of figurative elements and colors makes the spectators become aware about their own existence.

Miglena Yoncheva-Nikolova displayed her works during personal exhibitions at Inner Yards and In between Parts. She participated at the National autumn fair and has done several collective exhibitions in Bulgaria, Austria and Czech Republic. She was awarded the EDDL Art Award CEE in 2015 and received a reward from the Yordan Parushev Foundation in 2014.
