The founder:

Ionko Ivan practiced creative and educational activities in the USA, Canada and Europe. In Bulgaria he worked as Assistant Professor in ordinary at the Higher Institute of Architecture and has taught drawing and art of painting. Not long after the start of his career in Sofia to develop and implement his creative plans, he left the country and continued in the capacity of monumentalist painter and educator to practice his activities in the cities of Toronto and Los Angeles.
Travel related to his projects in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Miami, Vancouver, Paris and other art centers enhanced his stylistic approach to fine art. International experience which he has in multimedia interdisciplinary and interactive expression is an important aspect for detecting valuable elements in the projects of the Foundation. His artistic projects provide necessary components to realize the synthesis between architecture and monumental forms of fine arts, which synthesis is suitable for materialization in environments and areas provided by cultural institutes, museums of contemporary art, art galleries and universities.


The Foundation involves employees, managed by a three-member Management Board chaired by Ionko Ivan Stoyanov.



The artistic concept of the Foundation’s activity is created by Ionko Ivan, whose leadership was assumed by contemporary artist with multiple artistic identities.
