Nevena Niagolova is a Toronto based artist originally from Sofia, Bulgaria. Starting with drawing and painting lessons at the age of 10 she continued her studies in the National Fine Arts School in Sofia. She received BDes in graphic design from OCADU, has studied interaction design at the Canadian Film Centre MediaLab, and has a Masters of Architecture from UofT. Her work explores pure expressions of emotions, fascinations, influences and the like, gathered through her experiences of the world—a way of an emotional release. Her paintings are spontaneous bursts of energy with a dynamic, high contrast relationships; whether explosive or calm—there is always a purpose and balance. Though constantly evolving, there is a sense of determined exploration through intuition and excitement.
