George Dinev was born in 1959 in the town of Burgas, Bulgaria. He graduated from the Art School in Kazanlak, Bulgaria, and later in 1984 from the Veliko Tarnovo University St. St. Kiril I Metodii, majoring in Fine Arts.
For nearly two decades George Dinev walks through the discernible world of the things invisible. Like Alice in the Wonderland he roams throughout the fascination of the absolute and supreme fields of his imagination. There with the power of his artistic talent he gathers the humbleness of Christianity with the heathen passion, wisdom and emotion, mythical civilizations and modern time, legends and visions. There are the fairy-tales he masters and presents in colors and forms -original parables for the human spirit. In his numerous art works he dreams with his eyes opened. Temples and trees, real and imaginary things, water, clouds and sky radiance, they all dance in the vortex of the ether or hold their breath before the face of eternity. These infinite symbols and metaphors, familiar or not, they lead us by the hand through the absurd and in the same time so intelligible world of fantasy. You may like them, you may reject them, but you could never stay indifferent. George Dinev’s artistic predilections are a revelation for those who deep inside feel the need, to overcome the gravity, even for a blink of time.
