The opening of the first Facebook exhibition of oil paintings “Password Love” in our county took place on 12 February in Radisson Hotel our capital. The event was opened by the well known connoisseur of fine arts and collector of paintings Lyuben Dilov Junior. With overt sympathy and inspiring sense of humor Lyuben Dilov Junior fascinated the audience bringing to their attention the paradoxical fact: that Facebook turned out to be a mediator for his acquaintance with the artist’s pictures that happened two months ago, and provided him with the possibility to meet the artist in person and directly see his paintings two hours before the opening of the vernisage.
Georgi Petrov dedicates his unique exhibition “Facebook – Password Love” to his fans and friends. The event unites three cycles of paintings some of which will be exhibited abroad in two months for the enjoyment of his present and future fans there. In April and May this year, the talented artist will participate in exhibitions in the USA on the occasion of the days of the Bulgarian culture, as well as in Budapest.
“In art, you have to be the fist one who feels happiness while creating the work of art and if this does not happen, you can’t be sure somebody else will feel it,” says the artist Georgi Petrov for whom oil paining is “heartbeat, love, perception, mood; sometimes it is spontaneous but it is always done with an open soul.”
