Exhibition "Let's preserve Bulgarian art"

Exhibition "Let's preserve Bulgarian art"

Embroidery is like an obsession, and once you commit to this hobby, there's no way you won't become addicted to it. Those in the craft share that the philosophy of embroidery lies in patience and persistence. And in spare time, of course. But on the other hand, tapestry is one of the few effective drugs to deal with stress, helping to put aside everyday problems with ease. Tapestry artists from all over the country and Bulgarian women living abroad embarked on this creative adventure of transforming paintings by Bulgarian authors according to new developments. In the beginning it was very difficult, but with the professionalism of these women, we all managed together and gradually started to recreate pieces of Bulgarian artistic creativity in tapestry art, which is known around the world as the "Royal Hobby". "Gobleni Stefi" is the trademark of the company "Fanagoria 2009" OOD, V. Tarnovo. It was established in 2011, starting to develop its own tapestries in 2013 based on paintings by famous Bulgarian artists. It employs mostly young people - two computer specialists and three designers. She has an online store and her own studio in Veliko Tarnovo. "Gobleni Steffi" bets on Bulgarian artists with the idea of preserving our national identity through this type of art. The vision for our future development does not exclude the development of foreign authors from the Victorian era, the Renaissance, surrealism and the modernist "Fantasy" style. In 2013, Steffi tapestries held an exhibition entitled "Historical Monuments and Culture of Bulgaria" for the first time, which attracted huge interest and visitors from all over the country. The transformation of famous works of art into tapestries was the idea of Stefka Zlatkova, owner of Gobleni Stefi, who shared that the implementation of the large-scale idea was motivated by the desire to preserve Bulgarian creativity and art in an unconventional way. With this exhibition, we want to continue the initiative and turn it into an annual tradition. Today we would like to express our immense gratitude to all the artists who have given their permission to develop their tapestry paintings, allowing us to create a small part of the beauty they create and come out of their hands. With gratitude for believing in us, we would like to thank the artists: Victoria Stoyanova, Maria Ilieva, Yana Ilieva, Sasho Filev, Stefan Dimitrov, Velina Daskalova, Reni Karailieva, Dobriela Koeva, Julian Krastev, Milcho Tomov, Mila Vasileva, Evgeni Stoyanov, Elena Velichkova, Venetka Peinekova, Ognyan Kuzmanov, Yovka Mechkarova, Rumyana Andonova, Milcho Penev, Sonia Kedikova, Veneta Docheva, Pierino Hristov, Evgeni Chalakov, Tsvetelina Tsoneva, Simona Kostadinova and photographers Dr. Ognyan Nikitov and Silvia Boerekova. Creators and tapestries who also believed in us, followed us and gave yourselves in the name of beauty and art, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Thank you for the tireless work, dedication and creative inspiration with which you turn paintings into tapestries. And here is the place to thank the designers of the company: Katya Grozeva, Galya Angelova and Sonya Kedikova. Let's also thank our youngest tapestries, who are only 17 and 20 years old - Nadezhda Zlatkova and Steliyana Stefanova, as Steliyana has the most tapestries presented at the exhibition - 8 in number. This fact makes us happy and gives us the hope that tapestry art in Bulgaria has its followers and perpetuators of the idea among the younger generation as well. We also thank our sponsors: Construction investment company "Artur2007" - OOD Nessebar with manager Plamen Dimov. Construction investment company Prime Developments Co. EAD, Sofia, with manager Desislava Atanasova.
