They, them, their.

Stambolsky is an interdisciplinary artist, a visual storyteller, having attended Multimedia and Digital Photography studies at the City of Westminster College (London), as well as Cinema 4D editing, in Barcelona. Video art and photography are the core forms of their work, portraying gender and societal issues to achieve a vision of equality.

As a 3D artist, they have produced visuals to follow characters on stage in Heroes and Heroines, a show about bullying. In Mermaids, they take their multimedia skills a step further and design a digital stage, devising a cinematographic experience with video art, spoken word and contemporary dance.

Stambolsky’s graphic design and photographic work include advertisement for Catalan brands Uniqbrow and La Pell de Barcelona. In The Urban Ghost series, they use double exposure photography to portray passersby as ghosts, a metaphor for city life lacking a sense of community. The resulting exhibition was arranged resembling Barcelona’s skyline.

Stambolsky’s research produces thought-provoking concepts to break barriers and show their commitment to gender topics. The Secret Garden book presents a series of male photographs juggling their emotions due to cultural expectations. They managed exhibitions for this work in Lisbon, London and Barcelona. One of the pictures featured in a mass service in Rotterdam as a modern Jesus, wearing a flower crown instead of thorns.
