Pencho Tihov derives his inspiration from the minutiae of nature, whose invisible layers he describes as “plastic and artistic.” He lives in constant admiration of nature’s “poetic, lyrical, [and] surreal” intricacies, without which his art wouldn’t be possible.

Aside from Tihov’s fascination with nature, his art is also greatly influenced by womankind. His life, art, and dreams are all shaped by the impact of women. Tihov recognizes women as the physical and metaphysical origin of all men. Her presence is both “real and idealized, fantastic and expressionistic, artistic and poetic.”
