Thirty years of art experience. Countless exhibitions. 
While the name Anastas may not yet seem familiar to the ears of many Americans, certainly his work has been seen, studied, and written about by scholars in Bulgaria and throughout Europe. This page attempts to provide a small sample of the critical attention that Anastas has received. It is important to note that most of these pieces were translated out of Bulgarian into English by Dani Palkova. Articles are listed in chronological order.
