Daniela Raytchev is a London based contemporary artist.
Raytchev’s vibrant abstract portraiture and figurative paintings use signature fluid colours juxtaposed with intricate drawings. They offer a rare subjective expression and perception of the world. Raytchev is a devoted observer of the human condition that she explores through working closely with her participants. She interviews, sketches and creates studies of her participants before completing the final large scale abstract portraits. Her artistic ethos is to capture visual interpretations of the psychological and physical effects of conflicts within so the viewer can relate and reflect on the emotions that arise.
Having studied at the prestigious Central St. Martins College of Art and Design and London College of Fashion, Raytchev’s creative talents are not restricted to one type of media. Noticeably her most recent work is of sculptural character. Spiked details and large gestural painted marks with a full sweep of arm and body movements give dynamic sense of movement to her work.
Raytchev’s work has been getting international attention. Her art chess set ‘Addictions’ has been exhibited at the World Chess Hall of Fame Museum in the US, alongside renown artists Yoko Ono, Barbara Kruger, Sophie Matisse and others.
