, while a great number of her artwork is presented in her own channelTsvetana Yvanova is a multifaceted Artist. Born in Bulgaria, in the small town of Montana, built on the place of Montanensium , an ancient city that dates from the Roman Empire. Tsvetana started drawing at the age of four. During the formative years,, her talent grew in a supportive family environment. Inspired by the Renaissance masters, Tsvetana Yvanova sought formal instruction in Art while still earning her Masters degree in Landscape Architecture in Sofia. She studied three years with Prof.Angelakov, at the Bulgarian Art Academy " N. Pavlovich". Later on, in Los Angeles, as she was earning her Masters Degree in the Graziadio School of Business of Pepperdine University, Tsvetana has began studying sculpture under the tutalage of American Sculptor Max Turner. This collaboration has defined her classical style and perfected her figurative sculpting techniques, while her themes remain universal in its context . The first solo sculpture exhibition, titled " Untamed Spirit" was held at Gallerie Vendome in , Palm Desert, CA in 2005. Tsvetana's bronzes are in the collections of Mr.Oliver Stone, the Oscar winning Film Director and other numerous Private collectors throughout California.
While Tsvetana holds close to her heart figurative sculpture and portraiture, a testament to which is the recent portrait of President Barack Obama, remaining part of her work is in contemporary large scale acrylic painting . Her Process Art is based on planned spontaneity -and is influenced by such figures as Pollock, Franz Klein's explorations and study of space in black & white to the Warholian feel of some of the large scale portraiture - are some of the first impressions her work leaves . Exploring new venues is key for Tsvetana. Unafraid of the variety and presence of multiple styling reminiscences - she continues to use her work as a discovery process of her own complex soul searching. Tsvetana's abstract expressionistic series is a dramatic separation from her classical figurative sculpture and portraiture. .
To cut through the imagery and the conventional and let the mind wonder over the movement of the colors and shapes, that each time brings in something new to the forefront of the viewers attention ...is something of a goal. Layers upon layers of swirls, and splashes, and brush sprinkles and other controlled paint movement sometimes gives way to soft tonal transition. Recent photographic interest in painting has been noted in "HOLLY" - from LAFACES series. Blonde, stylishly un-groomed - with incredible determination and calm optimism look in her face, this work marks a new page in Tsvetana's Artistic approach to painting, loosely termed 'contemporary realism'.
