Simonida Filipova Kitanovska

Simonida Filipova Kitanovska, has been a professional artist all her life and had spent 30years as a leading artist. As a painter and visual artist she expressed herself in different media – oil, acrylic, installation, combined techniques and video. However, in the last seven years her work is almost exclusively dedicated to exploration of watercolor. A recipient of several awards and has participated in numerous exhibitions.

Right after graduation from National Art Academy in her native Republic of Macedonia (then Yugoslavia) her work was featured at the National Art Gallery as she was recognized as one of the leading artist in the country. Her thirty years career was marked by numerous solo and group exhibitions in Europe, Asia and U.S.A. Mrs. Filipova Kitanovska was awarded in many occasions for her artistic excellence.

In 1991-1997 she lived in U.S.A. and exhibited at Boston and Agora Gallery in Soho, New York City. Her very first watercolor paintings early on in her career earned her a special prize at the prestigious national competition. Years later she found that this technique that is fast drying, often full with  unpredictability yet precise and unmerciful to mistakes or corrections, match her own character, explosive expression and gesture, drawing using color and unquenched thirst for realizing ideas  to the inviting white surface instantly.

Member of the Association of Artists of Macedonia since 1988. 1991-1997 stayed and worked in Boston, USA
