Sabbi Gavrailov Art Sabbi Gavrailov

Sabbi Gavrailov is a self-taught artist from Bulgaria who works and creates in the UK. He originates from the town of Brezovo, which is also the birthplace of two iconic Bulgarian artists: Zlatyu Boyadzhiev, who died in 1976 and Mincho Katsaroff, an artist celebrated in France but virtually unknown in his home country.

Sabbi relates to Zlatyu Boyadzhiev through his great-grandfather, Zlatyu’s close cousin. There are striking similarities found between the landscape and portrait painting styles of Sabbi Gavrailov and Zlatyu Boyadzhiev. In his early days, Sabbi also took lessons in the atelier of another contemporary artist from the Plovdiv region, Geno Lazarov.

Sabbi graduated from the Vocational School of Architecture and Geodesy in Plovdiv, Bulgaria in 1996. In 2003 he settles in the UK and two years later acquires a Professional Diploma in Digital Photography in London. A fascination with digital photography over the past decade has helped to encourage his love of travel photography and his favourite subject, Portraiture. Despite always wanting to become an artist one day, the opportunity had never really presented itself until the loss of his father when a creative
outpouring of emotion unleashed his talent.

Sabbi actively participates in the local art communities in Hertfordshire and exhibits at local events, and galleries and takes part in national and international art competitions. His portraits have won the “Visitors Choice Award” at the Harpenden Art Club Annual exhibitions for two consecutive years, 2021/22.

In 2023 Sabbi makes his debut on the Bulgarian art scene with a themed solo exhibition at the very prestigious Private Gallery Dimitar Georgiev in the town of Plovdiv, where he shows Portraits, Still-Life and Landscape art. Selected Still-Life paintings are also currently displayed at R Young Gallery in Wokingham where he was invited to exhibit.

Sabbi uses primarily his own sketches and photographs to create his paintings and often participates in open studio events where he demonstrates his style of painting. He paints in oils as a primary medium, and he is commissioned for his award-winning portraits, still-life art as well as impressionist landscape work.

His paintings are in private collections around the world including, Bulgaria, the Middle East, Brazil, Denmark, Cyprus, and The UK.
