Yana Art Naive
Hello, my name is Yana and I am a naïve style artist. Like anyone else in this world, I am always searching for a meaning in life. I find those meanings in the things that are simple like air, freedom, beauty, love, all combined in one word - joy!
The particular style that I portray is naïve art. Naïve art represents a society in which artists carry their childhood spirits in their souls. I have met a lot of these artists at exhibitions and festivals around the world, and we are known as naivists.
"Naïve" means jovial, frank, ordinary, simple-hearted, sincere, pure, childish, unpretentious, casual, unsophisticated.
In my home town of Plovdiv, Bulgaria, I am one of the very few naivist artists who draw in this style. I have been traveling and exhibiting my artwork for 15 years in solo exhibitions all over the world. My goal is to make Bulgarian naivism known to the audience outside of my country.
Naivism is a trend that I am presenting with a passion, by searching for new places and new faces around the world. All the countries I have visited so far left a special mark in my life and I really want to visit them again. My own strive is to turn every participation into a solo exhibition and surprise the audience again with new colors and fantastic stories in the naive style. Like a different world, seen in a simple and serene way of life.
"Happiness in frame"
That’s how my paintings are defined. Vivid, colorful, bright, magical, and appealing. Much like a dream, with a gentle touch of reality, music, chime and shining lights, which I create in my own unique way, making them recognizable to every spectator. They all represent my inner world, and yes, that's me!
