Kristov regards art as being about self-expression and communication. Through his process he delves into and ponders the root of emotion in the work and the experience which it entails. This inspection allows the artist to further be in tune with himself whilst also attempting to elicit emotions within the viewer. Kristov is also fascinated with the elements of fantasy and darkness, correlating directly with the emotive element. This leads him to create compositions which coerce the viewer into some form of empathy with the work they are faced with.
