’99 Variations’ - Self-portrait.
It is the metamorphic alchemy of the camera and the mirror.
Inside me, there are gods, men and women, and androgynous mutants. They co-exist with my present self, and ‘we’ are all interrelated.
I brought a key, the camera, opened the door to the secret passage, the mirror, woke up my mythical archetypes, and lured them out into the world.
To be connected to another ‘me’ reflected in the mirror, with an endlessly switching spot, is a kind of communication that blurs the distinction between the image and the reality. Which, I discovered at the end of my work. Music was turned on, and I took pictures of my selves while I danced and acted.

- A triptych of 3D Prints. Each print was created using a different app / software. I interferred with the software as little as posisble, comparing the digital attempts at replicating reality. The result is then 3D printed, bringing the digital simulacrums into the physical world.
Metal sculptures by Rado Kirov, 2014
“As an artist, I believe that one’s creative pursuits are a mirror for one’s understanding and perception of life; it is my unwaveringly optimistic, positive outlook on life that I endeavor to express through my art. My mirror-polished stainless steel artworks reflect, whimsically and playfully, everything in their surroundings transforming even the ugliest surroundings into a beautiful vision. The message that I am trying to put across through my art is directed to those to whom it speaks, almost intuitively. It can be encompassed in a single word – the most important one on earth – Life.”
