Known for her animalistic passion for illustration, in this exhibition APASH will show you a different side of her work. Sketchbooks is a personal exhibition that contains over 40 selected moments from the illustrator’s sketches. For the past 7 years in more than 20 drawing diaries are preserved memories of travels, quiet moments, people met by chance and non-accidental personalities, exquisite creatures and found thoughts. Going through the technique of pencil and fine pen, the living line of her drawing sparingly builds memorable shape and volume.
APASH illustartion is the creative pseudonym of the artist Anelia Pashova. She has a master’s degree from the National Academy of Arts in Sofia, majoring in Illustration and is a member of DAFNI / Society of Animalists, Florists and Scientific Illustrators /. He has published five books, two of which are copyrighted. As a freelance artist, he developed his own brand of products with animalistic drawings.
In order not to violate the integrity of the sketches, the paintings in the exhibition are copies of the originals. On site at GIFTED, you will be able to purchase paintings from the limited series. All are numbered and manually signed by the author.
The exhibition can be viewed until June 15, 2021 at Gifted Sofia Sofia, 24 Ivan Denkoglu Str Working hours: 10.30 – 19.30 Facebook event
Еcological, sustainable and friendly to nature, that’s what I try to be my products.
Made in Bulgaria from high quality materials to withstand their maximum use. Their packaging is made of paper. The type of products is also carefully selected – eco shopping bags, reusable jugs, etc.
Here is a little more information about each product and how it works.
ECO BAGS Sturdy textile bags made in Bulgaria from 100% cotton. They are designed for shopping, heavy items or just for a casual and comfortable handbag. All available can be found here, and are currently at a discount.
POSTCARDS For any occasion – birthday, wedding, anniversary or just like that. Made in Bulgaria from thick paper and their envelopes are from recycled. All available can be found here.
MUGS An indispensable item for any camper, adventurer or just an urban person who does not want to use disposable cups. They are made of stainless steel with enameled coating. Just do not drop them on tiles and rocks, otherwise it will be difficult to destroy them. All available can be found here.
WALL ART I am starting a drastic change of all frames from plastic with Plexiglas to the more expensive, but better and more durable version of a wooden frame with glass. All available paintings can be found here. There is a division into categories for your convenience.
CHARGING Here I will surprise you about the way I load the materials I need. Everything that cannot be delivered to my address by courier, I take it or by public transport, sometimes taxis, and quite often – by bike. I already have side saddlebags for convenience.
DELIVERY I send shipments with cardboard boxes, paper envelopes or, if I have inevitably received something in an envelope, I use it again to send a new shipment. So don’t be surprised if your shipment comes a little strangely packaged. (:
DONATION A percentage of the sales are a donation to the Aurora Pet Rescue Foundation, which rescues stray animals from the streets.
There are certainly many more things I can do, but every small step is towards sustainable and ecological existence.
Let us introduce you to Aurora or Rora.
Our princess who inspired the creation of this foundation.
But she was not born in a castle and did not always have servants (as at present). In fact, Rora was thrown away after the first breath as an unnecessary thing.
She spent the first months of her life in clinics, hotels and foster homes, until she finally found her Man.
Many more like her are waiting.
In the last few years, we have domesticated hundreds of animals, some of them with even more difficult stories than hers.
Each animal costs a lot of money and is very difficult when you are alone. We put a lot of effort and time into our cause, but the truth is that we can no longer do it alone and we need help and financial support.

A Facsimile is a copy or reproduction of old books, manuscripts, maps or artistic prints as close as possible to the original.In the case of my paintings, these are digitally printed copies of my original illustrations, with often added detail and color to my hand.The shape and paper are the same or as close as possible to the original.Each facsimile is manually signed.The circulation is organic from 50 to 100 copies.
Photos Photos are extremely important for the development of detail.I need them as much as possible to get a better idea of the dog.Please to be without flash, if possible from a camera or with a high quality.To be with a low horizon (at the level of the animal, not photographed from above).The most suitable are the photos in a sitting or standing position, close-up and if possible without the tongue out.Photos taken too far away, out of focus, lying down or hugging, are not suitable.
From them I will choose the most suitable one or I will combine.You can send them as an archived file or download firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please do not send them via facebook or instagram because social networks reduce image quality.
More than one portrait There is no problem with a portrait of two or three dogs, a dog and a kitten, and any other options.I will be able to give you a specific price after discussing the details.
I do not include human figures in the portraits.
Technique Portraits can be painted with aquarelle, pencil or ink (I often combine). After seeing the pictures, I can recommend the technique.
Please keep in mind that my drawings are of impression and expressionism rather than photorealism and differences are possible. I chase similarities of course, but they are not exactly the same as the photo.
Accessory Sometimes I add accessories to the dogs – something that would suit them, their favorite item etc.
You can let me know if you would like to add something specific – hat, scarf, glasses, bow tie and so on.
Size I usually work in about 21/30 cm (A4) format, which is sufficient to develop a detail.If you would like the drawing to be larger, you can send me a request my email.
Frame The frame is not included in the price, but you can tell me if you want to get the portrait framed. The final price for it is is defined by the type of frame, glass and size.
Deadlines are determined by additional agreement.
If you are chasing a certain date, you can inform me and if I have the opportunity I will comply with it. * Please note that the minimum time for order completion is 10 days and I’m unable to accept urgent orders.
Payment Payment is made in advance before starting work by bank transfer.
For Bulgaria, your order will be sent free of charge to Econt office.
For other countries, the originals can be sent by post office with a tracking number. The price for that depends on the country and will be add to the final price.
