Since she graduated as a sculptor, Zlatina has been exploring the three-dimensional shape and only recently she has got interested into conceptual art and installations.

 

Today, when Art is a lot more science, research and documentary than anything else, Zlatina finds her artistic way, studying various themes. Her most favorite one is the concept of Mind and Consciousness; not only that of a human being but also the one of every other living thing. 

Consciousness, little explored in the past and intensively studied lately is yet quite unknown. Zlatina believes that Art and Creativity could contribute to finding the truth and making a breakthrough discovery.

 

In her works, Zlatina combines sculptures, made mostly of recycled or natural materials, with other media, always searching for an element of contrast or something unusual. 

 

Zlatina lives and works in Sofia, Bulgaria.
