Welcome to our Imaginarium!
The unquenchable curiosity and searching, wild energy, untamed inspiration, hunger for new worlds and visions. They lead writers and artists into a dance, with the deep and consuming darkness of the ink on the thirsty paper and its immense whiteness. Among the debris of the imagination pulsing images are emerging, jumping from one genre to another. From the surrealism of dreams to the dystopia of the cyberpunk, from the beauty of magic to the rawness of noir, from the naturalness of drama to the laughter of allegory, from the saturation of the battle scenes to the emotions of the quiet moments. It never stops! Our exhibition IMAGINARIUM from 2017 is the inspiration for this album collecting our comics strips. Some have already been showcased at international shows, exhibitions and festivals, or published in anthologies and magazines in Bulgaria and other countries. Collected for the first time, and specially for the Bulgarian readers!
We’re happy that with our comics album IMAGINARIUM we start a new line for comics and graphic books called ТУШ (INK) in the Bulgarian publisher ERGO. From its debut in 2002, ERGO has become synonymous with high quality European literature. Every book they release is proof of their motto “To books – with love!” https://ergobooks.eu/books/imaginerium-ot-emiliyan-valev-i-stanimir-valev/
And what do you have in your IMAGINARIUM?
