Mihov, born in 1986 in Bulgaria, began his art in 2015 as an exercise in mindfulness and creativity, which has progressed since on a self-taught path. His art is often inspired by semiotics and is designed to challenge the thinking of the observer with the unravelling of a story in each of his works.
Mihov often utilises oils in combination with precious metals to generate the illusion of minute, constantly occurring colour changes, dependent on the intensity of light and the observers’ viewing point. This is part of Mihov’s aim to question the conditions of appearance and perception.
