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

One of the remarkable phenomena of nature is the tide on the ocean coast. I was fortunate enough to attend one of the strongest outflows in the history of Southport. The sun slowly descended toward the horizon, and every detail of the landscape was bathed in warm, soft light. Water had backtracked far away from shore, and the sandy bottom glowed with thousands of small pools of salt water.

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.
