This week's Artist of the Week is Evelina Gospodinova, and she was so generous to throw in a special giveaway for you: an art print of her painting 'Dancing in the Street at Night!
Evelina Gospodinova is an image-maker who works in the media of photography and painting; her work is characterized by vibrant colors, dramatic contrasts, and sensuality. She believes in the power of dreams and fiction. Evelina started drawing and developing an interest in making pictures at the age of four. Since then her painting work has developed in two main directions:
1. abstract figurative compositions exploring the female form
2. impromptu studies of colors and textures
She works in mixed media on canvas and paper, where her detailed compositions are often intricately decorated with metal, folio, or glass pieces that reflect light in multiple variations.

As a photographer, Evelina focuses on fashion and still life photography. The themes that she explores in photography are largely the same as those of her painting work, the female form, contrasts, sensuality, emotions. Evelina's photography has appeared in print publications such as Livingetc (UK), Glamour (UK), Professional Photographer (UK), Shanghai Style (China), Hers Magazine (China), and Rouge Magazine (China).
About the Art Print
Evelina's giveaway artwork is a giclee print of ‘Dancing in the Street at Night’ (2009). The piece was originally executed in acrylic paint with mixed media on board (15cm x 20cm). It explores the carefree spirit and freedom of the heart of a woman dancing alone at night. She is playing with a piece of red fabric, with bold moves and a strong character, completely oblivious to her surroundings she is becoming one with the serenity of the night and letting the moon empower her through its romantic light.
Dancing in the Street at Night
‘Dancing in the Street at Night’ is one of the first works from what was to become the Faceless Nudes series, a collection of paintings exploring the female form in its sensuality, tenderness, seducing power, and agility. The women in the series have no faces and no visible anatomical female features for the purpose of making the viewer focus on the form itself and on its ability to capture and communicate intricate emotions.
