Gallery Miniature

The Gallery opened on 4 of March 1999 and was among the first galleries set up in Sofia. Miniature Gallery is a small family gallery, which nevertheless displays a diverse collection of works of art. Here you can find works of both fine and applied art. Author of the realistic small plastic works is Nikola Lichkov. He has dedicated many years of artistic quest in the area of plastic art and form. His statuettes are small-sized, yet deeply felt. When looking at them you can feel the warmth of every day life. On display are also graphic works executed in the following techniques: engraving on linoleum and on plastic, dry needle, etching and mezzotint. Their author is the graphic artist Milen Lichkov who works in the field of graphic and drawing. His is also the collection of water colour and pastel paintings, where he deforms shapes to bring them sometimes closer to the grotesque and caricature. In his works Milen Lichkov also strives to convey the wealth of emotions in human relations. The Gallery also displays works in national style, in particular Bulgarian embroidery whose author is Maria Lichkova. Her works are an effort to reveal the beauty of Bulgarian needlework and popularize this fine, albeit regrettably less popular these days, Bulgarian art.
