The Spirit and the Virgin. Shaun Berke
Alexander Mollov was born in Bulgaria and studied art in the National Academy of Arts. Surrealism is a foundation of his work and during the years his imagination further developed it into his unique style that nowadays we can admire. What inspires Mollov is mainly Greek mythology
and he uses it as a subject in his art. His artwork is sold worldwide and many of his paintings can be found in private art collections, galleries and exhibitions. Being a freelancer lets him reveal his talent in different fields of art. He has received prizes and awards for scenography, art of painting and illustration.

These portraits combine classical portraiture (look at those skin tones!) with a more illustrative style and a modern sense of androgyny. The results are intriguing and somewhat haunting, like sad fairy tales.
