IWS Bulgaria is part of a global network of watercolor societies.

"IWS Globe is a non-profit organization, which was established in January 2012 with the aim of promoting the world's oldest and most deeply rooted painting technique: the art of watercolor. Art brings people together despite differences in race, religion, culture and distance. Through the medium of Watercolor, our mission is to promote peace, harmony, love and understanding. This Triennial embraces this philosophy and I would like to thank each artist for taking part and setting an example to the world how people from diverse cultures can come together to work on a common goal."

The breath of earth, the strings of existence and the sound of silence.

" All of these can be painted with watercolor. And it is not just the quality materials and dexterity that define the magic of watercolor. The artist, with his inherent creative intuition and freedom, along with water that connects each microscopic particle of the pigment, are able even for a few minutes to create an entire universe, close and distant at the same time, with its own energy potential.
The serious professional training and a preliminary project or an idea are a basic requirement, but when in the moment of fulfilment they give in to feeling and spontaneity, then the Divine spark appears. It is that sacred relationship between the supreme creator and the creator artist, that transforms the work into art. In full strength, this metamorphosis refers to watercolor, the most sensual of all arts."
