NEW CREATION - 2013 - bulgaria
is the new project of the Medallic Scupture Studio in Sofia (Bulgaria). "The End", a 2012 medallic project of MSSS was just be finalised. This mysterious title inspired many interesting works of art. Thirty eight artists from 10 countries took part, presenting about 300 medals and medal objects.
The success of "The End" prompted the next project, "New Creation". For anyone who ended their earthly path on the faithful December date, it was indeed the end of the world. But for millions of others, born that day and later on, this was just the beginning of the world. An exciting beginning full of happiness and joy, but also some angst and problems. All intertwined with the Earth, the water, animals or even other planets...Those are also the topics of the newest international medallic project of MSSS for 2013 - "New Creation".
The new project consists of the following seven working sessions: "The Light", "The Water", "The Earth", "The Stars", "The Birds", "The Humans" and "The Extraterrestrials".
The purpose of the project is to give a greater variety of topics for medallic interpretation. Students from art schools, as well as professional artists are all invited to take part.
