maria pestana art gallery online intends to provide a commercial launch of the art works of selected international artists. Our intention is to promote young artists and less well known artists who have been chosen for their technical skills, personality or creative imagination. Also among our compromises is to present the artist to international competitions and prizes.

We offer to collectors personal consultancy services to assist them in developing their collections according to their special interests or in exploring new branches of contemporary art to begin collecting. In addition we firmly believe in promoting the excitement, pleasure and fascination of collecting art to a new generation of collectors and thus we offer advice and guidance all aspects of how to start, build and develop an art collection.

Mitko Zhelezarov (Bulgaria)


Mitko Zhelezarov depicts a highly symbolic painting. His symbols leads to religious themes. But there is not sorrow or tragic elements in his themes. On the contrary Mitko means to portray consciously a positive meaning. There is something primitive and yet new in his symbols. His paintings encourage a sense of perceived intimacy. The choice of deep colours such as blues and reds strengths the power of the chosen elements. The creation of a non conventional illusory space is addressed directly to the spectator.


Mitko Zhelezarov (Bulgaria) has widely exhibited through different locations at Art Galleries in Bulgaria, Germany, United Kingdom and Holland.

“I want my paintings to act directly on spectators. I want with them to tell a story from little stories, from affairs, from our trivial grounds. My work is led by signs, colours, and faith. I hope to see people with much more faith in our modern, global world. This is my ambition through my abstracts and the expressive paintings.” (Mitko Zhelezarov, 2009)
