"A person's inner world is not a lifeless pile of bricks or stones. Your every thought is reflected in this system and affects it. Like it or not, thoughts create their own reality all the time.” John Kehoe
Christo Christov is not only an established name in contemporary Bulgarian art, but is also recognized as one of the best Bulgarian sculptors with an authentic, recognizable style. Boldness, courage, enigmaticity with colorful accents stand out in his pictorial pursuits in the recent years. The canvases are constructed as beautiful abstract paintings, unfolding the color layers in the soul of a creator, captivated by the form and its line. The artist's typical style of expressing himself on the canvas with rigidity, intertwined with the lines of silhouettes, images, signs, codes and reliefs, asserts the independence, freedom and authenticity of his painting, but also shows the interrelationship and references to his typical forms and figures of sculptures his. Christov suggests cutting up the space from the heavy metal, and his experienced skillful hands seem to tame the material and create an impressive gallery of expressive images with a monumental sound and modern plastic solutions. And in his paintings, Hristo Hristov approaches uncompromisingly, his painting is dense, seen in its semantic monolithicity, giving sensory expression to the ideas he has, sought and thought in colors and shapes before they are created three-dimensionally, like sculptures and complementing them in a magnificent way. His canvases have an abstract sound in a soothing color with bright accents, with figurative references to his form and sculpture, but each one awakens associative suggestions and questions in the viewer and creates a sense of a story that each completes itself. Over the years, his work captivated foreign audiences in his successful performances in Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria, France, Poland, not only in exhibitions, but also through the presence of his works in a number of foreign collections and proves that he is not limited to the local, but meets the aesthetic understanding and love of people of different nationalities and cultures.
