Ivo Stoyanov was born in Kustendil, Bulgaria in 1963, and studied
mural painting at the Nicolai Pavlovich Academy of Fine Arts in
He paints subtle and rich canvases of ancient motifs and relics
framed against a delicate patterned background of antique
golds and russets. He says his spontaneous work is inspired by
the relationship between the outer presence and the inner life
of the painting.
Stoyanov immigrated to Canada via Newfoundland in 1990 and
has created murals in Nigata City, Japan; Hamilton, Bermuda;
Chicago; New York City; as well as in Exhibition Place and other
venues in Toronto. He has held workshops in Almunecar, Spain
and Toronto. Stoyanov regularly exhibits paintings and his work
can also be found in private collections in Canada, The United
States, Japan, Spain and Bulgaria.
