The wire is an elegant and expressive material that speaks to you. It carries a story and personal touch of an artist who uses it. That’s why I love it so much! These are the words of talented Nevena Atanasova, also known as Nir Vena. This Bulgarian artist created inspiring collection of wire art animals. Each of them telling us a story of danger we are facing due to our negligent relationship with our environment. Sharing our habitat with these amazing creatures is a blessing. Thanks’ to the people like Nevena we have a chance of creating a better future for all of us. Nir Vena has taken part in many mixed media performances, group exhibitions and solo exhibitions. Other than wire she uses materials such as paper and plastic in her creations.
Born and nurtured in beautiful Bulgaria, I’ve always put a special focus on nature. With the help of art, I strive to raise awareness about environmental issues and spread the word about how endangered our nature is!
My inspiration is nature. I live in one of the most beautiful villages in the heart of Rhodope Mountains. I am constantly looking for inspiration in all kinds of ancient sanctuaries and otherworldly places.
Working with different materials, especially with paper, wire, and plastic is something that I love. This allows me to share my feelings about over-consumption and environment in a natural way. I speak my mind loud without saying a word.
Currently, I’m working on the collection that will include Zodiac and Greek mythology characters, inspired by the sky and star lights. Spelled by the magic of light, I plan to push my art inspiration to the new boundaries. In a few months, NirVena light sculptures collection is to be released.
