During the past years his work is directed to the fantastic myth-folklore world of the Bulgarians. The eternal male and female beginning and the
fight between evil and human spirit are treated in the myth-folklore cycle. Woodnymphs and mummers are some of the most frequently used characters of
the Bulgarian folklore. Cultural variety - from heathen-mytological through ritual-folklore to biblical-Christian symbolism - is revealed in the
compositions.

The artist's colouring is inspired of multi-coloured nature and Orpheus land. The pictorial construction is in richly shaded and harmonious
tones suggesting warmth and expressiveness. The deformation is intentional and leads to a naive manner subordinate to the irrational.
