Glass Paintings Replicas on Roman Mosaic

This new collection of glass paintings is inspired by the vast amount of incredible Roman Mosaics dated I - VI AD, which can be seen on the territory of Bulgaria.

The collection "Roman Mosaic Replicas" started as an inspiration from the Plovdiv the Small Basilica, III-IV AD. As an outcome some travelling stories were created during the research of this topic. Fortunately, there are many of the Mosaics at various places in Bulgaria, followed by dedicated work and patience.

The pleasure of experiencing the beauty remains for the spectators, as well as earning a bit of knowledge on this interesting part of the Roman Empire history.

Scrolling through this website I realized my granny has a lot of achievements under her belt.

While I respect everything she has done in the field of Science or Art, none of these accomplishments speak more to me than the way she treats her family – with endless care and unmatchable kindness.

Katya Badinski Lekova
Katya Badinski-Lekova has graduated at the University of Chemistry and Technology, Sofia in 1965 (M.Sc. chem. eng.) In 1973 she was awarded a PhD in a field of the Instrumental Analysis in Organic Chemistry. She is an assoc. prof. since 1985 in the same field.

From 1996 to 2016 she is a lecturer at the South-West University "N. Rilski", Blagoevgrad.

Katya Lekova is an author of more that 60 scientific publications, one book and 7 patents. She takes an active part in scientific forums in Bulgaria and abroad in relations to analysis and control of different chemicals and products.
She is a member of the Union of Scientists in Bulgaria, the Union of Food Industry, etc.

Katya begins painting in the early 70's of 20-th century and her first exhibition with oils is in 1981, Sofia. Then she continues with pastels and later on she uses alkyd paints on glass surfaces.

Katya Lekova paintings are in private collections in Bulgaria, Austria, Cheh republic, Germany, England, USA, etc.

She is inspired not only by the process of painting, but also by photografy, travelling, music and, most of all, by her family.
"Project 2017 is related mainly to the creation of painting on glass and it combines painting and photography.

I hope that with drawing on glass and the different themes, I come out of the stereotype of the fireworks and flowers typical of the periods associated with the use of oil and pastel paints characteristic of the 1st and 2nd period.

I hope I found what I've been looking for over many years.

Thus, the different subject matter expresses my inspiration from many artists and the reproduction of the idea of their paintings, as well as the unforgettable moments of trips in recent years."
