Yordan Parushev Foundation

The Yordan Parushev foundation came into existence in the legal world in June 2012. Its main aim is focused on the dissemination and popularization of the life, art work and public life involvement of the painter Yordan Parushev. The foundation is actively working on the creation of a fund, electronic archive, and website as well as participation in various art exhibitions, festivals and cultural fora. Among one of the important aims of the foundation is the organization of a prestigious national competition for young talent through the establishment of the Yordan Parushev Prize.

The foundation also strives to support and further develop the Bulgarian national heritage. It actively participates in all cultural activities in the town of Sliven where it aims to stimulate and enrich the art life of this unique Bulgarian town.

«Yordan Parushev Foundation» is also in the official register of cultural organizations of the Bulgarian Ministry of Culture.

The foundation has its own branch in Paris. Thus, with its presence on the international art stage, the foundation can avail itself of the protection of French law and generate new projects and artistic output.

Today Yordan Parushev has gathered us again and he generously shares with us the gift of the purity of his spiritual insights and the warmth of his artistic experiences that heighten the senses with their sensuality. He leads us into his quiet spaces in order to make us kinder and more illuminated. Now we have to face this trial – by opening up, discovering and absorbing as much as we can. Paintings…paintings as keepers of the history of a painter!
