About Galya Bukova
There are no upcoming events
Galya Bukova was born in Sofia (Bulgaria) in 1978. She was raised in an artistic family; her father was a
painter and her mother a writer. The artistic atmosphere of her childhood home
was the main influence in her development as an artist.
She graduated from the Secondary School for Applied Arts and Painting in Sofia. While a teenage student, she turned to painting professionally full time. Her hand painted silk scarves and paintings have been shown in local galleries and over the Internet.
If her art could be described in two words, one might use, "contrasting" and "bold". She works in several styles, such as cubism, realism, pop art, abstractionism and surrealism, exploring new media and new techniques in order to express herself. Just like nature, her art is continually changing and growing.
She responds to the caprices of contemporary spiritual events esthetically, depicting the changing beauty of life in it's true colors and moods.
Her art works are part of many collections around the globe.
