My name is Dimitar Todorov and I was born in 1989 in the city of Kardzhali, Bulgaria.
I’ve graduated from the local school “Otets Paisiy” with a Mathematics specialty. During this period I also attended intensive painting classes where I learned the basics and got hooked to art.
After graduation I decided to advance my skills and took some private lessons from two teachers from the “National Academy of Arts” at Sofia. In parallel, I took some classes to extend my digital art knowledge with Adobe Illustrator, 3D Studio Max and Photoshop, while also participating in various art-oriented online courses on the platform Schoolism.
For a few years, I worked as a digital painter of 2D game art styles and 2D fan art illustrator for an international company.
After I gained some work experience, I decided to start my own company “D-iotov art” where I present my art illustrations as wall paintings, paintings on canvas or illustrations on merchandise such as T-shirts and mugs.
Once I gained some local popularity, I was invited as a guest lecturer to teach painting to children. This was a new, but super exciting and motivating experience. The feeling of being able to teach and transfer even a bit of your knowledge to new generations is an incredible feeling.
Although I like the whole art of painting, my passion is to paint on walls with the technique of acrylic paint in traditional realism style.
My passion for art is something that keeps me going. I constantly look for ways to upgrade my knowledge and find new opportunities to perfect myself.
