About the artist: Boyan Marinov
Born in the picturesque Bulgarian town of Veliko Turnovo, Boyan Marinov grew up in a loving family of architects. In 1999, after serving in the Bulgarian Army and attending the prestigious Bulgarian Film School for three years, Boyan moved to the States to pursue his passion in woodworking. Boyan finds closure and peace in painting, carving, disassembling, modifying, and building items and expressing his personality through this work. He realizes that what he creates should be shared with people because he is not alone in this enjoyment of what is simple and pure; what is meaningful for him speaks to others too. Boyan currently resides in Chicago where he runs his own custom furniture woodworking shop, BoStructure.
This year, Boyan's Genesis can be found on Clark Street offering a reminder that nature is fragile, just like we are.
