Born and raised in the streets of Sofia, Bulgaria.


The work of GLOW is strongly embedded in the urban

environment and the positive transformation of the

public space.


His journey started with graffiti in early 2000s

slowly shaping his personal abstract language and

distinctive style based on bold compositions,

vivid colors and geometric flow.
