Kiril Baikov

 

Kiril Baikov was a frequent visitor of both the Bulgarian University of National and World Economy and the Bulgarian University of Chemical Technology and Metallurgy, where he studied the rather exotic subject ‘Inks and papers’.  

In the period between 1997 and 2000 he acquired many impressions and gained experience about life and art while taking part as an extra in various films, music videos and TV ads. Eventually he chose the field of visual arts and crafts as his domain: he designed artwork for music album covers, undertook a work experience in Bulgarian national television’s Channel 1 and edited and co-authored video clip features Creature, broadcasted as part of the weekly TV show Myst on Bulgarian TV channel BBT; he was also an assistant for a documentary about the company Crown Agent and for the documentary ‘How Columbus reached Bulgaria’ (broadcasted on Bulgarian national television). Kiril has worked full time for two Bulgarian TV channels: TV Evropa - as webmaster, later as coordinator, and in VTK (Military TV channel) he was responsible for editing/live editing of various programmes. Currently, he works as a designer in a sports website.

Kiril is a big fan of dragons and abstract art and is addicted to the works of Terry Pratchett and those of J.R.R. Tolkien. He loves parties and likes to inflict alcohol-inspired phone calls on his friends in the early morning hours.
