Mihaela Ivanova is an artist who mainly paints landscapes succeeding in deriving the hole enchantment of the object of nature. Her personal creative charm is in the non-standard point of view and in the colour brought to conventionality.. Mihaela Ivanova’s paintings convey poetical and philosophical messages. In her works shapes of nature are brought to allegory and symbolism. She explores the possible states of space and the possible existence in them, regardless of what is happening in reality. The artist is inspired by the fantastic nature of the Bulgarian mountains where she often goes hiking. In her paintings, she manages to express the sublime poetry of Bulgarian nature with the dexterity of an serious painter and inspired travaler.
