Atanas Matsoureff

For those who addicted to Andrew Wyeth`s aesthetics I got a good news. A watercolor artist from Bulgaria Atanas Matsoureff came up very close to Wyeth ideas. His works combine very high drawing and painting skills with romanticism of daily seeing objects.

"Watercolour is a painting technique which offers an infinite scope of possibilities for artistic expression, highly demanding on the part of the artist concentration combined with passion." - said Atanas.

"The beauty of watercolour painting lies in the white of the paper, the lightness, the movement, the transparency, the vibrant colours. I paint from nature and I bow before the beauty and the forces of the Nature and the simple, ordinary things around us. I try to catch the spirit of each material and to touch the thing beyond reality" Atanas Matsoureff
