Lidia Simeonova (b. 1956, Plovdiv, Bulgaria)
My artwork is a reflection of my life. I have projected frozen moments-good and bad-onto the canvas. As my style and personality matured, I traveled the world. I was born and grew up in Bulgaria, where I obtained a Bachelor's Degree from Velico Tarnovo University of Fine Art. My free spirit, and lust for discovery and exploration fueled a worldwide journey. From Bulgaria, I moved with my family to Czechoslovakia and again to Germany in 1991.
Once we arrived in Germany, I found myself eased and inspired by many traditions, culture and good friends there. I kept painting and managed to put on a couple of shows in Germany while trying to explore different parts of Europe too. When we moved to the United States in 1994, I discovered another world-the world of electronics and computers. Here I found the opportunity to show my artwork at many national and international shows, where I received most recognition and awards.
Today my portfolio reflects a variety of mediums and style. I spent many years as an abstract artist, but the human figure has always persisted in the creative process. One thing I am trying to achieve is creating a work in which life and painting blend in a perfect existential poem. I will present the viewer with a harmonious, contemplative image, which speaks to the spiritual complexities of our existence.
