Contemporary Paris based, self-taught artist,
Originally from Eastern Europe.
Since 2012 Boré Ivanoff essentially paints Paris . Subtle blend of glory, pain and suffering, the city of light is his greatest source of inspiration. Trying to intrigue and surprise his audience, he focuses on transcribing an unconventional Paris, unexpected, enigmatic, "never seen before".
Between the abstract and the real...
Sophisticated and complex, Boré Ivanoff's works oscillate between abstraction and realism. The artist manipulates shapes and colors and reinvents reality to make it subtly abstract but always recognizable. In his compositions where interiors and exteriors intermingle and seem inseparable, Boré experiments and explores the boundaries of reality.
Bore Ivanoff is the initiator of the "ArtPositive" project, an international exhibition of HIV-positive artists for the first time in Paris, with the main objective of fighting, through art and personal example, against stigma, isolation and HIV-related discrimination.
