Christo Dagorov’s Multi-Layered Drawings Overlap Surreal Imagery

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Self-taught artist Christo Dagorov creates multi-layered drawings in which scenes appear to melt into one another. In his “Skylines” series, translucent urban landscapes manifest in spirit-like ways over placid beach scenes. The interplay between nature and urbanity asks viewers to image a place’s current state and what could have been. Dagorov’s use of acute gradients gives his work a nearly sculptural level of depth. His series of monochromatic drawings titled “Lips” also melds various images, this time constructing surreal, hellish visions in the shape of human mouths.
