Plamen Georgiev Dankov


Born in 1951.

His professional career has been devoted to woodcarving, primarily in the field of church arts. He has specialized mainly in producing wooden panels for icons and triptychs employing traditional technology, and carvings for them of various complexity and intended for various purposes. His projects are highly valued and preferred by many distinguished iconographers in Bulgaria and abroad.

I seek to feel the soul of each piece of wood before it is made into an icon or triptych panel. I derive inspiration from the art of the masters who have worked for churches and iconostases through the centuries. What I strive to offer iconographers is well composed and carefully executed woodcarvings. I prefer old, already used material that conveys a sense of history.
