Ognyan Chitakov

Ognyan Chitakov lives and works in Assenovgrad.

Born 1976 in Assenovgrad, Bulgaria. Studied 1998-2004 at the National Academy of Fine Arts, Sofia, Bulgaria.

In his own words: "I am a sculptor, not only because this was my major at the National Arts Academy. Sculpture is for me a way of thinking, a way of communication, a way of living and an outlook on life.

"Sculpture gives me the freedom to create and make my ideas visible. I love sculpture because it is at the same time a form, space, function, architecture, design, engineering, technology and most of all it is arts – both fine and plastic arts. Among all materials used to shape sculptures my passion lies in stone. Stone is ancient and sacred, and it is part of my nature."
