category: Painting
technique: Oilpainting
Style: Classic modern


Bio / Resumee / Statement:
My biggest challenge is to express the light as I sense it. Light is my favourite quality in a painting, it creates the forms, the movement, the relationship of the tones and finally it forms the composition. I emphasise the light in my paintings through a tonal selection of dark and light forms. I am inspired by capturing a certain moment, a unique glimpse of our present, transforming it into revelation. So it makes me and the viewers appreciate the beauty in the simple moments of life.

Currently living and working in London, Nadia Tsakova was born and educated in Bulgaria. She has exhibited her work widely throughout the world including her native Bulgaria, Greece, Macedonia, the Czech Republic, Italy, Poland, Canada and London
