Who is Nikola Gunev? A very young artist who has a developed social sense, which he invests in his paintings when choosing a creative theme – that is he. Definitely a strong figurative artist, although with a little artistic career, the authorboldly uses the brush for interpreting the offended and humiliated, the poor and disadvantaged. As a contemporary Georges de Latour, he seeks and displays the inner light in his paintings, sometimes even giving it the main role - that of the spirit. When the painting becomes a second nature to the author we can expect strong,soulful and original works. The author makes a claim for a future perceptive and effective portrait maker. Now let us just enjoy the talent of this young and pumped upfor creative work artist. Krassi Alexieva, 2013
