[Interview conducted by Cyrus Smith]
Daniel Bozhkov studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Sofia, Bulgaria where he was trained in the traditional painting techniques of fresco, egg tempera and oil painting, then moving to the United States to persue a graduate degree at Hunter College in New York City. Bozhkov’s interdisciplinary, interactive, and multi-faceted projects have been described as “positive subversions,” often addressing cultural issues with a bit of absurdity and play.
He teaches at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Columbia University, Yale University and Rhode Island School of Design. Bozhkov was a recipient of the 2007 Chuck Close Rome Prize of the American Academy in Rome, among many other awards and accomplishments. Bozkhov produces and exhibits his work internationally, and is represented by Andrew Kreps Gallery in New York City.
