transhuman, transgender, Transsexualism, david, Goliath, the last David, 21c David, feminization, male-to-female transsexuals, david donatello "the Last David" by V. Zankov В. Занков Bronze 43.3 H x 14.6 W x 12.2 in., 110x37x31cm.

At a time when unisex, metrosexuality, transgenderism delete the physical differences between the sexes, masculinity is killed and is solely used for advertising certain brands of cigarettes and cars, the interpretation of David , defeating Goliath , in the 21st century is an elegant transvestite who has cut off the head of the defeated big bearded and hairy Goliath, with which Zankov's David ends the aesthetic trends established by the sculptures of Donatello and Verrocchio, depicting David as a delicate and effeminate young man with a sword in hand.

About Ventsislav Zankov

Fear, Passion. Through different media  – sculpture, painting, video, photography, I work with the bodily – physical and immaterial – in a search and interpretation for the baring of the single human life, in realising and pronouncing the sense of emptiness of being, which opens by the individual fitting in the immanent – the social and material in the absence of the transcendental in a thinkable balance. The naked body as an aesthetic ideal and category in the social field becomes undressed, while deserted in the political it turns bare. The bare life of HOMO SACER (Agamben).  I try to reach to fine and figurative suggestions, coming from the sensations of this bare life, and in their sharing as an artistic practice the baring to get tolerable.

New Ghostly Painings
/we are now all shadows/
It’s an inspiration, meant for the 21c. cave walls with their minimalistic hi-tech Italian interior design, suggesting respect, happiness and prosperity.

The workout obsession and the religious passion for bio- and eco-dieting are in fact a repetitive revalidation of the inconvenience we experience through our ‘improper’ bodies. The bodies we desire to have are perfect, that is immaterial. Neglecting our bodies on the other hand suggests perhaps a refusal to acknowledge the material world and our presence in it. Communication has been reduced to a virtual, lonely and body-less experience, allowing you to choose the ideal appearance, and without much effort. This imposed appearance either equals the best ever photo- carnality or the lack of it. At the same time we are branching inside, we grow our wishful, im/possible and un/real ideas about ourselves and our own boundaries. The dumb horror of our empty lives, our frustrated sexuality and spite, rising from the tensions of our day-by-day physical efforts to remain present in the material world, keep hissing through the cracked polished surface of the ideal and its reflection. Survival remains our last priority, with its price rising and its value falling.


New Ghostly Paintings presents the punctured and unarticulated shapes of Homo Sapience in the 21 c. through minimalistic, stylized drawings and with patterns of spontaneity and reserve that go back to the traditions of the Far East. Content-wise the images of the new ghostly paintings are western by default, they are shadows cast over the walls of modern caves, inhabited by us and our hysterical relationships. The new ghostly paintings may be defined as the cave paintings of the inner world of the barbarized, disintegrating human being of the third millennium AD, paintings that shock and captivate viewers with their simplicity, expressiveness and symbol power .

With his latest series of large-scale paintings Ventsislav Zankov achieves a sudden and unbelievable encounter between eastern practices in painting and modern images, pregnant with expression and evoking The Scream of Edvard Munch, rushing back to the caves of prehistoric men and tapping on their efforts to grasp and conquer the world in a painting.
