Transitions: neo-folkloric portrait paintings by Simona Ruscheva

London, UK-based artist Simona Ruscheva fuses folkloric and traditional elements from Eastern European with contemporary techniques and styles to create unique and exuberant portrait paintings.

Neo-folkloric costumes in vibrant colours correspond to the digital age and inner shifting of perception. Delicate threads construct the fabric of our world. Emerging from the past, their infinite weaving unfolds the present before our eyes and alters the future within ourselves first. The transition carries the symbolism, mysticism and power of culture into the new form — narrating the reimagined tradition, embedded into the works.
