Angela Pencheva is a Bulgarian artist, NFT creator and designer based in Sofia. Being raised by artists fired up her interest in drawing from a very young age. Angela studied Graphic Design in New Bulgarian University. In 2015, she opened her first solo exhibition and since then participated in 10 more solo and group exhibitions around Bulgaria. Since 2017 she works as a UI/UX & Graphic Designer and for the last few years she got involved in multiple NFT collection projects. In parallel, she continues to paint and experiment in her personal creativity and develops her own style, using different techniques. Angela finds her inspiration in movies, emotions and people’s diverse personalities. Her work is mainly focused in collage art and surrealism.
"I like experimenting. Do I have the nerve to glue 1000 googly eyes on this canvas? No clue, let’s try. What would happen if I spray paint this terrifying dead cockroach in pink so it looks more appealing? Damn, that turned out to be one sassy cockroach. Stuff like this rocks my boat. My journey in the art world is always evolving, never staying for too long in one place. Because of this you’ll see different techniques in my work.
I also have a very deep interest in psychology. I like observing people as they micro-react in situations. That's why I started doing my portrait collection. I want to spill the person’s soul and true self on my canvas. What makes a human interesting to me is his authentic character. It’s a shame these days most of us try too hard to be somebody we are not and that adds up to the world becoming grey and monotonous. My mission is to prevent that and inspire people (and myself) to be more genuine, fearless and adventurous."
