2054 ~ 3 мин. четене

Houben Tcherkelov is a Bulgarian artist who has been living in New York since 2000. In the mid-1990s, he was an active participant in the XXL artistic circle, organized around the gallery of the same name in Sofia. After moving to the US, he became popular with paintings and stories borrowed from banknotes and coins. He is known there with the artistic name “Houben RT”.

In all of his work, the artist seeks to suggest the way in which symbolic images legitimize national power. His works have been featured at The Bronx Museum, NY, The Brogan Museum, FL, the 54th Venice Biennial and galleries in New York, Boston, and Charlotte. He is the subject of the 2012 documentary, “Houben Paints Money,” by director Georgi Tenev.
