Opening : 5 March 6-9 pm
Born in 1970 in Sofia (Bulgaria). Lives and works between Paris (France) and Sofia (Bulgaria).
As a sculptor, Stefan Nikolaev is an attentive observer of the codes that govern our current environment, saturated with logos and signs everywhere identical. His art borrows advertising marketing codes to convert them into pop minimalism. Stefan Nikolaev represented Bulgaria at the 52nd Venice Biennale. He was the founder and co-head of the Parisian space Glassbox created in 1997. He received the UNESCO Prize for the Art at the 4th Cetinje Biennial.
