Vesselina Zagralova

  • Bulgaria (b. 1977 in Stara zagora)
  • Currently in Vienna, Austria.


The work of Vesselina Zagralova deals with issues that shape today‘s society – consumption, religion, gender roles, social rules, human behavior and human beings themselves. Media (television, newspapers, Internet), history and everyday life are points of reference. Each artwork is a reflection of something happening in the real world, either in the present or in the past.

People and objects get a symbolic meaning, which calls gridlocked social rules of yesterday and today into question. Objects that surround us as children and as adults and form our role models and our view of the world, for example appear as a whole army  threatening to kill us. Objects become part of the human being or the human being turns into the object.


Born in 1977 in Stara Zagora, Bulgaria.
Lives and works in Vienna since 2004.
Studies at the University „Sts. Cyril and Methodius“, Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria, Department of Religious Painting (emphasis murals)
