For the past several years Daniel Bozhkov has been involved in realizing projects taking various forms from ambitious interventions, media events, to discrete objects, paintings, and photographs. Given Bozhkov's fine art training in Bulgaria, his conceptually-driven work is often anchored by a traditional craft or skill, converging old world and new world practices in order to pursue new meaning, surprising connections and provoke philosophical inquiry.
Daniel Bozhkov studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Sofia, Bulgaria where he was trained in the traditional painting techniques of fresco, egg tempera and oil painting and completed graduate studies in Fine Arts at Hunter College in New York City. He teaches at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Columbia University, Yale University and Rhode Island School of Design. An award -winning artist, Mr. Bozhkov works and exhibits nationally and internationally.
