Dimitar Kazakov — Nerόn (Modern Bulgarian Art. Names)
Language: Bulgarian, Engilsh (bilingual)
Dimitar Kazakov — Nerόn was born on 22 June 1933. In 1965 he graduated in Graphic Art from the National Academy of Art, Sofia. From 1966 he participated in General Art Exhibitions in Bulgaria and in representative exhibitions abroad. The following year he received the Graphic Art Award of the Union of Bulgarian Artists. In 1980s Kazakov gained a public recognition. He had exhibitions at prestigious galleries in New York, Paris, Madrid, Vienna, Tokyo, Toronto, Athens, Basel and Luxembourg.
In his pictorial canvases Kazakov not only recreated motifs from traditional beliefs and folklore, but was also an artist who created a new Bulgarian mythology enriched with examples of world cultural heritage. Regardless of the varied, even experimental materials and techniques he used, Neron’s unique style is unmistakably recognisable. The figures in his paintings aspire to the hereafter, enveloped in a mystical aureole, while the suggestion of the mysterious nature of the universe is reinforced by the presence of typical symbol-signs. Artworks by Dimitar Kazakov are in the ownership of the National Foundation for Contemporary Art (FNAC) at the Louvre, the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of the Imperial Collections (Tokyo) and many private collections.
