Alex Gekova

My name is Alex and I am a young artist. I am from Sofia, Bulgaria and at present I am studying architecture in Glasgow, UK.

I am a student of the famous Bulgarian watercolor painter Nikola Angelakov, who continued the watercolor tradition in Bulgaria after another renowned painter - Vasil Stoilov.

For me nothing is as enjoyable as art. My preferred medium is watercolor, although I love experimenting and learning new techniques, as well as studying different artists' works.

In each painting I am striving to set a unique palette of stories and ideas. I am a supporter of plein air painting. Nature and architecture enchant and inspire me, so painting outside is always a pleasure for me.

I aspire to find beauty around us and to paint it for other people to see it, too.
