Once upon a time … there was a Castle near Leeds in Kent, United Kingdom. Even today, the first meeting with the castle takes us back to the times of glorious battles, knights in shining armor and fairy tale characters.

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.

    Hi. Pretty. Must say though, that looks like Leeds Castle, which is in Kent, the opposite end of the country to Leeds.

  • You are absolutely right – in the description I skipped the word “village” to keep the fairy tale sound in it, however I changed it now to “near Leeds in Kent, UK” to be more precise :)
    Its Leeds castle near the village of Leeds, not the city.

  • Thanks, that is correct. :) Best wishes!
