Medea is originally from Bulgaria and Georgia. She received her artistic education in the National Art Academy (Sofia, BG) as well as worldwide training thanks to the numerous international education and exchange programmes, art residencies and art events she has participated in and been awarded with.
Since 2020 Medea is permanently based in London and is a full time visual and multidisciplinary artist. She has mainly practiced in drawing and painting all her life, but especially through the last seven years she developed a unique style of live sketching and painting. She believes that the most genuine way to capture the energy, motion and mood of the particular moment is through the initial drawing at the time and place of creation.
Medea experiments with different techniques and materials, so she can keep challenging her drawing and painting, as well as her and her viewers visual perception. She understands her artworks as an abstract rhythm of shapes, lines, brushstrokes, patterns and colours. Through live sketching and painting she is searching to depict the abstract rhythms and energy of life.
