Nedko Solakov

Born 1957, Cherven Briag, Bulgaria; lives and works in Sofia

Nedko Solakov is one of the most prominent Bulgarian artists. His prolific artistic output ranges from paintings and drawings to sculptures, installations with ready mades, performance and video installations. He finds the subjects of his works as much in his own life as in the social and political realities if his own country and has a tendency to candid self-deprecating, sometimes melancholic humor that makes the emotional honesty in his works all the more poignant.
