Andrey Yanev Silent Light. A Journey to the Holy Mountain Atos

Opening: October 10, Thursday, 6 p.m.

11 October 2006 - 03 November 2006

The idea behind the creation of Silent Light exhibition originated after Andrey Yanev’s journey to the Holy Mount of Athos as part of the New Bulgarian University project Mount Athos in Bulgarian Culture and Literature.

Andrey Yanev has symbolically divided the exposition into two parts. The water-colours present realistic landscapes which introduce the viewers to the geographic contours of the Holy Mount. The accent of Silent Light exhibition has been put on painting. Through it the author tries to convey in colour and images the spirit, the atmosphere and the power of the divine presence on Athos.

The current exhibition gives us the unique opportunity to experience the emotional and spiritual impact of Mount Athos. Let us “listen” to the silent light which pervades the artist’s canvasses and makes us look deep inside ourselves.

Andrei Yanev was born in Bourgas. He graduated from the National Art Academy in Mural Painting under Prof. Mito Ganovski. He also specialized in Artistic Enamel under Prof. Talaschuk at Vera Mihova Arts Academy in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
Member of the Union of Bulgarian Artists.
Between 1992-2006 he has held over 25 one-man exhibitions in the country and abroad. He has taken part in a number of general exhibitions, contests and plenary exhibitions.
Works of his are to be found at the National Art Gallery in Sofia, SINAIDE GHI foundation in Rome, Italy and the art galleries of Balchik, Kavarna, Vratsa and others.
