Затаете дъх...
Hold your breath...
Познахте го, нали? Владимир Димитров- Майстора!!

This is a masterpiece of one of the most famous and loved Bulgarian painters -  Vladimir Dimitrov-Maystora (the Master). His art is of a high quality, "unique au monde", modern as an expression and truly Bulgarian as atmosphere, sensibility, colouring and themes...

Нека да се полюбуваме на някои от вълшебните му картини, разкриващи българския бит...

Enjoy some of his magical paintings, revealing the traditional Bulgarian way of living...

... както и на тези, вдъхновени от красотата на българската жена и природа...

... as well as these, inspired by the beauty of the Bulgarian women and nature...

Ако сте любопитни, може да намерите повече информация тук ...
You can find more information about the artist  here...

...and here.

Също може да се насладите на други негови картини, докато слушате "Катерино, моме" в изпълнение на Деси Добрева.

Bulgarian  folk music is maybe the most recognizable representative of Bulgarian culture around the world.  You can listen to a famous Bulgarian folk song - "Katerino, mome", sung by a young Bulgarian pop-singer. I chose it, because it'll give you the opportunity to see some more of Vladimir Dimitrov-Maystora's paintings. (The video begins with traditional Bulgarian embroideries). I hope you will like the music and Maystora's art!

П.П. Този пост е първият от серия, посветена на културата и природата на България. Той бе провокиран от интереса на мои чуждестранни приятели от блог-пространството към нашата страна!

P.S. My dear foreign blogging friends, this post was provoked by the sincere interest of some of you towards my country. I'll do my best to get you acquainted with its culture, nature and folklore as far as I can...

Февруари, 2012 г. - Съвсем скоро разбрах, че двата поста за Владимир Димитров-Майстора са най-четените в моя блог и интересът към тях не спира! Искам да уточня, че не съм изкуствовед, нито художник, просто написах това, което чувствам, намирайки картините в Интернет. 

February, 2012 - I saw in surprise that the two posts about Vladimir Dimitrov-Maystora are the most read ones in my blog! I am not an artist, but I wrote them from my soul and heart, using materials that I found in Internet. I'll be really happy, dear bloggers from all around the world,  if some of you leave comments here! Thank you!

  15. How nice to meet you here, hello! (I know you from Amalia's blog). And what a coincidence - I was just wondering how to get in touch with you in order to comment your last post. A little while ago I followed your blog officially, after having been visiting it for some time). I have what to say on the theme "Hansel and Gretel", but was much disappointed to find out there's no way... Well, since you are here, and if you are intrigued, see the label "puppet theatre" - there you'll find something about my experience in directing "Hansel and Gretel"... I wish you inspiration and success with your work!
    P.S. So my bad chance turned in some minutes into a good luck...:-)
