Biliana Velkova - Bluebird

Oil on canvas, 24x16, 2022


Originally from Sofia, Bulgaria, Biliana Velkova is currently based in Vancouver. Her practice incorporates painting, photography and performance to explore the significance of consumerist culture, diaspora and social identity. She has an MFA from the University of Saskatchewan and a BFA from Concordia University. Velkova is also the Public Art Planner for the City of Richmond. 

When she immigrated with her family to Canada in her teen years, Velkova was transplanted from a Communist upbringing directly into Western culture. This experience created a deep impression on Velkova, both personally and as an artist, and has provided her with a unique perception and fascination with consumerism, in both its superficial and it's more ingrained, socio-cultural impacts.
