He is currently a Professor of Art at The Illinois Institute of Art, Chicago, IL where he has taught since 2000. His art is a reflection of his unique perspectives. An exceptional view of contemporary life.
Born in Bulgaria, Ivanov earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Academy of Fine Arts, Sofia, Bulgaria in 1992. Since 1990, his works have been exhibited in numerous shows throughout Europe and the USA. Jordan Ivanov works in a variety of techniques and materials. He currently lives in New Orleans, Louisiana. Ivanov has said that "I wish, and hope, to capture the vibrations of the status quo reconsidered and transformed by subjectivity. My goal is to gather in layers the patina of memories that will come true and of future events that we have forgotten. I would like my paintings to speak to the innermost parts of the soul, to pull the most sensitive strings, and to help people establish harmonies with their true identities."
Vasevski was born in Bulgaria and he earned his Masters of Fine Arts in Sofia from the National Academy of Fine Arts. He currently is an instructor at the The Illinois Institute of Art, Chicago, IL since 2003. In his artist’s statement Vasevski has said “I have come upon the magic of painting in my childhood. Back then it was just another way of playing and enjoying life. Some years later, art gradually has begun revealing itself as a path to the meaning of things, a vehicle that would help me integrate the outer world with the inner one in me. Today as I create, I follow the genuine wish to connect with others, to reach their human desires through expressing what I see, feel or believe. My paintings are visions of a dreamland, a place of harmony and balance, I uncovered in myself. I call that place "Garden of Peace".
