The Creative and Gifted Have a New Name: Mihaela Karadjova from Shumen

Written by on August 24, 2016 in Culture, Leisure - No comments

Mihaela Karadjova is a 22-year-old student, who may have chilled a little during the long summer vacation, like everyone does. But, most of the time she spent drawing, which is what she loves most. Now that the summer will finally be over soon, Mihaela will be starting her Master of Arts degree at the National Academy of Arts in Sofia.

She was not really aware of the fact that her work is really special “until people told me it was”. Her latest project is entitled “SKATECHES”, a word creation coming from her two passions: Sketches and skateboarding. What the latter is concerned: She does not use skateboards actively, but she likes everything about the culture around those wooden boards on wheels: “The skateboarding culture is full of emotions and life. There is joy, freedom, love, there are dreams, pain, hope.”

Mihaela, who is from Shumen, believes, there is no such thing as routine on skateboards. “It’s just never boring and the skateboard culture is always growing into something bigger than the day before.” This statement shows, she is also very good with words, but that is a secondary aspect here.

As her stunning sketches do show, this young artist gets inspired by skateboarders. “They are very ambitious people and they are always united. They always have a goal and they are not afraid of the struggles which that goal might get them into.”

This latest project of hers, “SKATECHES”, has not been exhibited, at this stage, but she is planning to make sure it will be.

So far, she has been part of bulk exhibitions. She did one with her sister, who is just as gifted, and an exhibition in cooperation with other artists, entiled “Almost Famous” (see video on the bottom right). There is more good news: Mihaela is about to get into her next project: “SKATECHES 2”.

On this sketch, the artist says: "It shows the brotherhood, the friendship and the loyalty. It's just one of the best feelings, to have someone who thinks like you do and is "always in" for your wise or not so wise decisions. People who have twins or really strong connections with their brothers or sisters, or both, will understand."
