Rudi Ninov is a young artist from Bulgaria, educated in London and based in Frankfurt. His practice is comprised of drawing, sculpture and painting, mediums that document how two dualities, the formal and the personal, and the abstract and figurative, relate to each other throughout his oeuvre. His work approaches and welcomes diverse shapes, precise colour selection, and decisive borders and references to music, comic strips, collected objects, written fables and poems are rife. His paintings are like visual writings in their re-imagination of familiar imagery and his sculptures are physical documentations of the duration of time, sometimes made through the accumulation over time of coloured paints on the studio floor. His approach to the painting surface means he produces immaculately vibrant colours via a process of layering and washing away thinly applied paint. He often works simultaneously on paintings or paintings together with sculptures meaning his practice is constant and continual. His work has a unique command of drawing-into-painting, and painting-into-form, demonstrating a kind of spontaneity in a process-based exploration.
