oil on canvas, original size: 48 × 40 cm.

Today we will dive underwater to observe a fabulously beautiful dance. I’ve met the fluorescent jellyfish in one of the biggest European aquariums and even though I know that this is not the typical subject for a painting, I decided that this beauty deserves to be on canvas.

Kiril Stanchev is born in 1974 in the city of Rousse. He is a representative of the new generation of Bulgarian artists who are trying to combine the beauty in the tradition of the old masters with the complex emotions of the present. Inspired initially by the cultural atmosphere of his own family, and particularly by his grandfather Kiril Stanchev Sr., one of the well known names in Bulgarian art, Stanchev developed his style in the Sofia College of Fine Arts.
