Between 1976-1981 he studied (MA) monumental ceramics at the Academy Of Art, University Of Sofia.
Petrov’s work is influenced by the Mediterranean light and Jewish traditional art.
The material used by George Petrov has a great power – it is clay dug from the ground, the base of our being.
With his unique technique, George Petrov creates sculptures revealing different characters when observed from different points of view and explore rich relationships between forms and textures.
The temperatures he uses make the colors rich and the products sturdy.
Each sculpture is unique and one of a kind.
The authentic material and profound sensitivity of the artist gives the item special character and creates a special atmosphere wherever it is exhibited.
