Julian Jordanov was born in Lovech, Bulgaria. He has continued to live and work there, after receiving his Masters in Fine Art from the National Academy of Fine Arts in Sofia, Bulgaria. His prints are strongly influence by both surrealism and symbolism, and he is highly sought after for the specialized medium of creating ex libris prints. These smaller prints are almost always accomplished in etching and aquatint, and show a superb level of detail and skill hard to find outside eastern Europe. He also works in lithography for larger, more surrealistic prints.
