Description: Lyubomir Kolarov (b. 1959) in Rouse Bulgaria. He currently lives and works in Plovdiv Bulgaria. He is an award winning artist and one of the most famous Bulgarian painters. Lyubomirs talent emerged at a very young age. As a 4 year old he began drawing animals, landscapes, and his parents portraits. He was inspired by cowboy movies in elementary school and began to draw comic books that became very popular among his peers. He never stopped painting, though at the insistence of his parents Lyubomir studied and became an architect, which helped him develop a unique perspective on his art. In 1989 after the fall socialist Bulgaria, he concentrated his efforts solely on painting. The new democracy provided an opportunity to demonstrate his talent and build a successful career. He helped create the Free Bulgarian Painters Union and became its leader. Lyubomir has had exhibitions at the International Centre for Foreign Art in Istanbul Turkey & the National Palace of Culture in Sofia Bulgaria, an honor that few contemporary artists have had. He has shown his work in over twenty solo exhibitions at home and internationally. Lyubomirs paintings are in private collections across the US, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
