The paintings in the FRESH category will send strong green vibrations on to you. Green is the colour of life and the colour of all things fresh. It signifies those biochemical processes that, influenced by sunshine and water, give rise to life and production of oxygen. It is the colour of chlorophyll, which underlies photosynthesis and there will be no oxygen without.
When feeling tired or stressed out, you can just sit and stare one of the paintings with shades of green and it will bring relief.
Green is a fantasy. Green is optimism and health. Mitkov's paintings have the unique capacity to immerse viewers in this living environment. The works themselves are full of life! You can feel the smell of grass, flowers, a waterfall and water lilies when looking at them.
And silent water has its own smell of relaxation, which is so much sought for after a hard day.
Take a deep breath!
The most fascinating period is from 2012 on. Mitkov highlights two particular dates in it: 21.12.2012, supposedly the end of the world, and 10.02.2013, the beginning of the Age of Aquarius and the Chinese New Year. According to the artist, that was the time when the mankind chose its future 2000-year cycle and the good prevailed. Always positive, always filled with a lot of energy, Mitkov turned his latest period into a life mission. It is not about just composing paintings but rather about creating and putting enormous love into canvases. The painter believes a painting can make a real difference in a man’s life.
