"Dripping Paintings" by Boyan:
"I started to make those paintings after moving to a large studio at an old cinema turned to a carpentry .Everything was covered in thick dust and I put the raw canvas on the floor to use it as carpets. Soon I started to notice different shapes that appeared on the canvas made by foot prints, cigaret ashes, and paint. Some of the shapes were very clear so I tried to paint them using wood paint . The wood paint is like water color - it's hard to control or erase and once you make a mark it's there to stay.
I try to find images hidden in the canvas by following shapes or making marks trying to create a painting that is based on an accident .
