I am Vera Blagev and I am a London based abstract artist. Having travelled to more than 50 countries, and lived in three of them, I now call London my home. Over the years, I have worked with various media - from coloured pencils and watercolours to pastels, oil and acrylic and even ceramics. I have actively exhibited my work in the UK and the USA, am a grant recipient from the Washington DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, and was one of the winning artists of Pebeo's inaugural Mixed Media Art competitition in 2016.
I am interested in creating artwork that is fundamentally unquestionably beautiful. Focusing on what is most inspiring, calming and aesthetically pleasing in this world, natures as a theme comes back again and again. I strive to display the fantastically varied colours and textures of the natural world in my practice. I want my work to leap off the paper and grab the viewer and transport them to a beautiful serene place.
