Nikolay Petrov GLOW
Nikolay Petrov is an independent artist and designer focused on creating artistic interventions in urban spaces – contemporary mural, graffiti and street art. Born in Sofia in 1988, his passion for art began back in 2002 through the prism of graffiti subculture and its many manifestations, gradually evolving into a professional quest.
He graduated in Advertising Design at the National Academy of Arts in Sofia, Bulgaria. GLOW has participated in dozens of graffiti art festivals and in a number of group exhibitions in Bulgaria and abroad. His murals and graffiti can be seen in Sofia and almost every major Bulgarian city, as well as in dozens of countries in Europe, USA and Thailand. Nikolay was also the first graffiti artist to realize a mural in the atrium of Kvadrat 500 in Sofia at the invitation of the National Art Gallery.
DESIGN IS: a solid tool.
