Ognyan Chitakov is a professional Bulgarian contemporary sculptor, graduated from the National Academy of Arts in Sofia with master degree in Stone Sculpture. All his life he has been working mostly with stone materials. His father is a Bulgarian stone sculptor too. Ognyan inherited his passion and developed it in large amounts. He is now nationally famous for his extra large figurative stone sculptures, abstract statues and monuments, which can be seen in many galleries, banks and public parks in Bulgaria. Most of his artworks are already part of private collections in Europe and the US.
"The stone material is alive and has a soul. I never ignore it and its gravity as well. I try to give each artwork the feeling of lightness."
