Hello and welcome to my portfolio
My name is Yordanka Nikolova (YoNikol). I am a musician and an artist, who was born in Bulgaria. I have lived in many different countries such as Cyprus, the Sultanate of Oman, Bahrain, the U.A.E., Norway, and Germany.
I have been interested in art since my childhood, and it has become the most important part of my life.
I have a Master’s degree in Music from the Academy of Music, Dance, and Fine Arts (http://artacademyplovdiv.com) and a Graphic Design degree from the British Academic Centre in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.
Music, Painting, Graphic Design, Digital Art, Photography, or other creative activity helps me express myself, and make people see the world through my eyes. Every artist starts as an amateur, but all that matters is a willingness to study. I do believe that education never ends.
Art is a different language, it helps express emotions, communicate with other people, spread joy, and relieve stress. Art, in any form, can evoke emotions that can lift their spirit and make them more driven or inspired than ever.
Fear of making mistakes in art will destroy our creativity because our mistakes become part of an original artistic style.
My inspirations are nature, light, shadows, sounds, and human emotions. Often, a new painting is created by me based on music. In the past few years, I have become a huge fan of Digital Art, photo editing, and digital drawing using different types of software. Art says things that even words cannot say. Welcome to my world of colours.
