I am an illustrator, contemporary artist, graphic designer, and visual experimenter in the fields of fashion print design, music festival decoration, and other creative events.
I have been drawing since childhood, and I created my first t-shirt design in 1991 for the Sisters of Mercy.
I studied art history in Berlin, where I first I got my first exposure into the world of street art, festival, and event decoration, and multiple other participations in the art, design, and fashion industries.
I currently live and work in my hometown of Plovdiv, Bulgaria, which in 2019 was voted the annual European cultural capitol.
Over the past few years, I have been working as an independent artist, consultant, and art director for different clothing brands.
My true passion is illustration, which has influenced my work style and helps me envision my projects. I strive for what I do to come from my soul, with effort, precision, and a passion for details.
I work with galleries, individual clients, and indie art collectives.
My art has been featured for multiple well-known international brands, and some of my favorite projects are my collaborations with Nike, Audi, VW group, Converse, Burning Man, GoGO, Tribal Tools- Berlin, Badinka, and many others.
My newest passion project is my t-shirt brand AndonastY, which I am developing with great love and enthusiasm.
I am open to individual projects, collaborations, consultations for clothing print design, and for private or corporate orders.
