Albena Vatcheva, 1967



Albena Vatcheva is a young French artist of Bulgarian origin who advances in a spectacular way. Her painting has inherited various traditions, including that of masters of the icon. Using different oriental sources, she has created a world of troubling fairy, which is a real fascination for the eye, as her glowing colors create magic.
Tender, loving, her characters live in a world of peace, harmony and mutual consolation.
Let us not forget that poetry was her first passion. Vatcheva lives in the parallel universe of tales, of big universal legends, of invincible childhood and enjoys an outstanding sensibility. The ease and the elegance she has acquired allow her to express a wide range of feelings.
Spiritual and sensual, she is undoubtedly only at the dawn of more than a promising journey. We have here an authentic talent, especially considering her recent admission into the sphere of painting.



Like most people from the Eastern countries, Vatcheva is intensely inward-focused, a soul searcher.
Sensitive to the suffering of others, her childhood dream was to become a doctor - and art is another way of bringing gentleness and hope into the life of others.
Using color in her 'organic and psychic' actions, to use Deunov's expression, Vatcheva introduces us to a world free of violence, oneiric, luminous, filled with love and compassion, yet not empty of reality or fantasy.
With Vatcheva, light is omnipresent, making the characters transparent, as if filled with an invincible spiritual force that does not, however, eliminate sadness or introduction. Her works bring enchantment to the present.
Maeterlinck said that 'what distinguishes us from one another is the relationship we have with the infinite'.
Painting, like other forms of art, is in fact a metaphysical question, a pretext for excess in any form. It is about aesthetics.
'As artists, we cannot add pain to the world' - Vatcheva likes to say.
The marvelous part of her gift is this return to the lost paradise, the dimension where childhood lives side by side with the profane and cynical world.








Albena Vatcheva è una giovane artista Francese di origine bulgara che avanza in modo spettacolare. La sua pittura ha ereditato diverse tradizioni, compresa quella dei maestri dell'icona.
Utilizzando diverse fonti orientali, ha creato un mondo di fata inquietante, che è un vero fascino per gli occhi, poiché i suoi colori luminosi creano magia. Teneri, amorevoli, i suoi personaggi vivono in un mondo di pace, armonia e reciproca consolazione. Non dimentichiamo che la poesia è stata la sua prima passione.
Vatcheva vive nell'universo parallelo dei racconti, delle grandi leggende universali, dell'infanzia invincibile e gode di una sensibilità eccezionale.
La disinvoltura e l'eleganza che ha acquisito le permettono di esprimere una vasta gamma di sentimenti.
Spirituale e sensuale, è senza dubbio solo all'alba di un viaggio più che promettente. Abbiamo qui un talento autentico, soprattutto considerando la sua recente ammissione nella sfera della pittura.
