Jivko Jeliazkov is a renowned sculptor whose works are found in prestigious collections all around the world. Originally from Bulgaria, he is especially well known in Paris, France, where he has lived and worked since 1990. His architectural compositions are full of life and movement, with themes revolving around man’s evolution and transcendental fate. With a delicate balance between traditional matters and contemporary forms, Jivko’s sculptures seduce the viewer’s subconscious. He captures wild and primitive energies with his soft and angular geometry, leaving us heavily humanistic pieces teaming with mythological meaning.



Sculptor, Jivko is born it February 14 1963. It studies with Sofia, then with Prague where it exposes from 1987. In 1992, it settles with Paris where it chooses French nationality. Its sculpture, at the same time lyric, imaginative and plentiful by details, takes as a starting point the large myths Western antiquity, legends and traditions contemporary world, but Eastern Europe as as its vision baroque decline in unstable balance. Its sculpture, which falls under the purest European tradition, is incontestably anchored in our time.
