North Shore Studio


Born in 1991, Yordan Yanev joined the Arts of Life in 2013. His body of work is lively collection of color, patterns and fantastical subjects.

“Those things I drew on the paper are in the painting. Vases, shirt, a necklace. Sometimes I can use different colors. I mix them up in one. Sometimes there is pink, sometimes purple, sometimes orange.”

Unexpected color combinations burst forth and vibrate against one-another. Graphic, lively patterns appear, reminiscent of folk. Scenes are enlivened with animals and original characters of Yarnev’s own invention.

Eye-catching and intriguing, Yanev’s art demands the viewer’s attention.
