BIOGRAPHY

Neycho Doychev ( D’Neycho) is born in Bulgaria on the 3rd of January 1950 in a military family.

His father was very well known military general at that time. As a child he was growing up in an environment of very strict discipline and the stringent education system of the then communist regime. Since a very young age Neycho was discovering his artistic talent. After school finished he would spend hours sitting in the library reading lots of history and story books and afterwards he would go and start drawing about the most interesting story he read. When he turned 18 years he joined the military school on the insistence of his father. Soon he discovered that the military school was not for him.

In 1972 D’Neycho, despite the pressure of the family to join the military school, subscribed for the Art University of Veliko Tarnovo. After 4 years he graduated the Faculty of Fine Art. In 1976 he won concourse where the first price was a six-month scholarship specialization of Fine art in the Art Academy of Bratislava, Slovakia.

After his graduation in Bratislava he returned to Bulgaria and in 1977 he worked for one year as school art teacher until an opportunity in the City Art Museum in Bulgaria presented itself and he started as a curator. In this period he was also commissioned by the Bulgarian government to make frescos in style of social realism. This not only improved his financial situation but also provided D’Nechyo the ability to travel outside the country. He was making landscapes while living in different countries and at the same time he was participating in different exhibitions.
