Nelly Dimitranova’s practice combines a lifetime’s devotion to the history of painting with the desire to present on canvas those human qualities that are invisible to the human eye. She paints women both from her immediate surroundings and iconic works of art.
Born into the family of a painter and a medical translator in Sofia, Bulgaria, at the age of thirteen Dimitranova was accepted to study at the art school in Sofia where she received intensive training in painting and drawing, and from there she progressed to the Sofia Academy of Fine Arts. In 1991 she came to London to study at the Royal College of Art, supported by the Bulgarian Embassy.
She now lives and works in London and has exhibited at the Royal Academy, the Royal College of Art, Pentagram Design and the Coningsby Gallery. In 2015 Dimitranova had a solo show at the House of St Barnabas and in the same year was Artist in Residence for Red magazine.
