Ivan Bogoev was born in 1988 in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.
He had exhibitions which took place in Plovdiv and Sofia and he as well made some of his works participating in art seminars and workshops in Paris, Ohrid(Macedonia), Plovdiv and Sofia. Pictures of his are bought and now possessed by clients in Bulgaria, Greece, The Netherlands, Russia, Australia, USA.
Ivan is unique for his talent ability to work independent on a high quality level and with grace in a vast spectrum of techniques and various mediums as if there is a whole team of different artists working separately with their own styles. But in the end it is still the same person-Ivan Bogoev. Now he has graduated as BA student in Animation Major and BA Graphics and Illustration Minor programs at NBU, Sofia.
He was working on his first hand-drawn short animated movie where he practices the live-under-camera technique with soft pastels. The movie called ''The Shaman Eagle'' was selected to participate and to be projected in the students competition program at the Balkanima 2011 International Animation Film Festival in Belgrade.
About art: The techiques he uses are various: tempera, ink, soft pastels, acryl, oil as well as digital. Ivan has advanced knowledge for softwares like CorelPainter 12, SketchBook, Photoshop, Bryce, 3DS MAX.
Being a student at the New Bulgarian University he had courses like storyboarding, comics and cartoon character design research. Along with the courses in animation he as well studied the art and different techniques of illustration as his second specialty. Ivan loves to put an element of global significance in his artworks. Melding classical aesthetics with modern abstraction and post-modern concepts are his favourite combinations when building up sci-fi or fantasy illustration scene.
Ivan, like every self-determined and seriously working young artist, has his wish upon a shooting star. This dream is he as a graduate to start working in a creative team of concept artists, character designers and illustrators in the book publishing and movie industry.
Nowadays, Ivan takes his Master's degree in Graphic Design at the wonderful Florence Design Academy right in the heart of the city of Florence, Italy.
