American Madonna
Welcome to the mysteries of Peter Mitchev

 
"As if through a Byzantine gate between cultures and times, the mystique-saturated dress and demeanor of human ritual depicted in the art of Peter Mitchev delivers a rhythmically tranquil and life-affirming message. From ancient iconographic traditions, through dreamscape postures passing Klimt, Modigliani and other beacons of a later age by sheer emotive effect, Mitchev harmonizes his layers of influence with richly subdued tones and textures."

  New Art International, Volume VIII 2002-2003

American Madonna, the name of my new art site, was born by the idea that America - the land of freedom, dreams and love - was created by ethnic, religious and cultural diversity, and that the people born in this sacred land are already the true Americans.

This is why I wanted to present this idea in a picture titled American Madonna. A young woman kneeling down, covered with a mantle decorated with the symbols and colors of many religions and cultures that coexist peacefully in this country, hugging tenderly and lovingly her sleeping child wrapped in the American flag - symbol of the safety and inviolability of the people born under this flag. For me, this is how every woman giving birth to her child in the land of the freedom, becomes an American Madonna.
