“To us, it is true happiness that we managed to gather these creator-individualists together in one hall, so that we can melt the hearts of the spectators. The idea of 101 Cartoons. 101 FunnySnowflakes is a sequel to the cycle “101 Drawings” which Art Gallery Serdica started for the last Christmas. The first exhibition united eminent Bulgarian artists and students from the National Academy of Arts. This time again the goal is to allow the art to be for everybody who wants to make a Christmas present and own an original work of a Bulgarian artist at an accessible price,” said Dragomir Dimitrov, an executive director of Markets Vazrazhdane, the organization which administers Zhenski Pazar Market and Art Gallery Serdica.
“The caricature is a fragile little tree, which grows freely, unattended, in a dry, gritty-rocky soil. Always green, always spreading, in spring, in summer, in winter. A little tree with a few branches – the thorny branch of the political satire, the twisted branch of the black humour, the ever blossoming branch of the white humour, the branch of the parodies and methaphors of the conceptual caricature and the ever discontent with life branch of the social caricature. We can be thankful to Art Gallery Serdica that in these cold winter days, it will be the window to the tree of caricature” says Liubomir Mihailov, one of the autors in 101 Cartoons. 101 FunnySnowflakes and he adds that the humor, the merry mood and the fun in the caricatures, which will be shown in Art Gallery Serdica will break the ice in our hearts and remind us that all of us are actually sitting at the same table.
