My name is Kostadin Dimitrov Radichev, born in May 1996 in the beautiful village of Momchilovtsi, located in the heart of the Rhodope Mountains. I have been involved in the arts since I was a child. In 2015 I graduated from the National Art High School “Tsanko Lavrenov” in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. A few years later I started studying Painting at the National Academy of Arts, Sofia, Bulgaria. I have participated in several exhibitions, the largest of which was “100/100” in Gallery 2019, Plovdiv (Аssociation of the artists), and I was the youngest author along with other big names. Cooking is my passion, I guess it’s because I love food. I love nature and more precisely the mountains!!! I was lucky enough to grow up in an environment surrounded by artists, musicians and DJs (each of them understanding quality music). Thanks to this, I grew up as a prominent music lover and to this day, constantly digging for new music. And this is the other thing (besides creation), without which my everyday life would really become meaningless.
