This January the artist Nikolay Kuchkov revived the bohemian spirit with his retrospective exhibition "My friends and I".

Colleagues and admirers of the great artist Nikolay Kuchkov shared his excitement at the opening of his solo exhibition "My friends and I" at the City Art Gallery (in the halls at 15, Knyaz Alexander I) on 4 January.

Flowers were sent by the Minister of Culture, Vezhdi Rashidov, and congratulations were offered by the Municipality of Plovdiv.

Plovdiv's art lovers saw Nikolay Kuchkov's friends - the most eminent artists of Plovdiv and Bulgaria, immortalized in his drawings, caricatures and portraits. The gallery halls saw the revival of the bohemian spirit of the last century, when artists like Dimitar Kirov, Georgi Bozhilov - the Elephant and Georgi Boyadjiev - Boyadjana were communicating actively and creating the unique artistic atmosphere of Plovdiv. Over the  years, the circle of the no longer existing Plovdiv pub got bigger or smaller, but never lost its striving for freedom of artistic expression.

Throughout the years Nikolay Kuchkov painted lots of portraits of his friends, but they were scattered around art galleries all over the country. Now he has gathered them together at the City Art Gallery and we are invited to see them until 31 January.
