Latchezar Boyadjiev, born in Sofia, Bulgaria (1959) is a glass artist known for his figurative and abstract sculptures that depict the human physique and powerful forces of nature. Creating fluid and flow form pieces, Boyadjiev’s work is often monochromatic in color, using mainly reds, blues, and yellows, and is then complimented by lighting he uses to place emphasis on the pieces profile.
Boyadjiev attended the Academy of Arts, BG, (1979) to study ceramics and later attended the Academy of Applied Arts, CZ, (1980-1985) where he studied glass making under Stanislav Libensky. After his graduation, Boyadjiev relocated to California where he worked with optical glass for more than ten years, continuing to improve on his glassworking techniques and creating glass sculptures. Eventually, Boyadjiev transitioned from optical glass to cast monochromatic glass, due to a limitation in size.
Boyadijev’s work can be found in various museum collections around the world, including First Interstate World Trade Center Los Angeles, CA, the Naples Museum of Art, FL, the Glassmuseum der Ernsting Stiftung, Germany, the Museum Of Applied Arts, Prague, Czech Republic, and the Museum de Alcorcon, Madrid, Spain.
