Lika Yanko: Drawings. An album
Language: BulgarianEnglish (bilingual)
Visual arts


The unique presence of Lika Yanko (19282001) on the Bulgarian art scene was marked by her childishly spontaneous and biblically wise world of images and forms. Lika Yanko is best known as a painter who went beyond the conventional concepts of expressive means through collaging various "accidentally" found materials, through interweaving the abstract and figurative, through constructing forms of almost only one colour — white.

Lika Yanko’s drawings are less well known and an acquaintance with them best reveals the intense, practically constant process of "rationalising" the world through stroke and line. Created between the early 1970s and the mid-1990s, the sketches included presents an essential element of Lika Yanko’s creative process and biography. Through them, clearly recognisable and unique, the linear style that she later developed in her canvases of that time can be traced.
