Sergei Rimoshevsky

Art by Sergei Rimoshevsky,(Belarus)

Russian artist Sergei Rimoshevsky was born in 1964, in Grodno, Belarus. Due to his high level of professionalism in his portraits, paintings, allegories he appears before the judges as a director and playwright. His paintings, woven from real life experiences keep secrets, awakening the imagination. The artist reveals the world of the individual, but the reading of this world is only available to thoughtful viewer, ready to plunge into the world of childhood. Painfully homesick for Russia, Nabokov admitted that nostalgia for him — primarily in his memories of «the ultimate, happy childhood,» considering the painting of Rimoshevsky to be the most secret corner of the child’s soul in each of us.

Peter Mitchev - Bulgarie

Visual Artist Peter Mitchev

Peter Mitchev is a master visual artist. He was born on May 9, 1955 in Pleven, Bulgaria. He started painting at the age of 15 and is an autodidact artist. Between 1974 and 1990, his artistic career was developing mainly in Bulgaria because of the limitations imposed by the Communist administration. During that period he was not allowed to travel and exhibit abroad. After the change of the regime in 1990 his international career took off. Mitchev had the unique chance to exhibit together with Salvador Dali at Gallerie L'angle aigu in Bruxelles, Belgium. He gained major exposure in France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Luxembourg and Denmark. In 1994, the artist joined one of the biggest cultural projects of UNESCO together with Cesar, Carsu, and Buffet and in 1997 the four of them had an exhibition at Hotel de la Monnaie, Paris.

Mitchev's paintings are displayed in collections all over the world along with De Buffet, Picasso, Dali, Rene Magritte and Botero. Hundreds of his paintings are possessions of corporations and museums on the five continents. Between 2000 and 2005 the artist lived and worked in Tampa, Florida. In late 2005 Mitchev returned to his native city of Pleven, Bulgaria.
