Pravdoliub Ivanov

Pravdoliub Ivanov was born in 1964 in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, and lives and works in Sofia. He approaches his work with witty reserve in a laid-back quest to challenge an array of attitudes and accepted behaviors. He channels the rapid changes occurring from recent socio-political and economic upheavals, which are transforming the Balkans. Ivanov echoes and upbraids absurdities of contemporary society and explores “the delicate balance between capitalism’s promise of personal freedom and the realities of economic dependence.”
