Iavor Lubomirov was born in 1978 in Bulgaria and lives and works in London, United Kingdom.
In 2000 Iavor completed his degree and Masters in Mathematics at Oxford University in England, where he was awarded prizes and scholarships from the university and outside institutions. After graduating he studied art at night school while working for a blue-chip corporation in the City and later left to study for a BA in Fine Art at University of East London.
Since 2005 Iavor has worked as an independent artist, curator and exhibition organiser. His work was recently chosen for the Saatchi Online '100 Curators 100 Days'. In 2011 his work was shortlisted for the Saatchi Online's special curated "Art Paris" collection. He has exhibited in solo and group shows at Angus-Hughes Gallery (2011), The Magnificent Basement (2010), August Art Gallery (2009), Calvert 22 (2008), Liverpool Independents Biennial (2008), The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition (2007) and at various pop-up shows and events in England, Sweden and Germany.
In 2007, together with Goldsmiths graduate Jordan Dalladay-Simpson, Iavor founded the art network ALISN (www.alisn.org), through which he has been helping many emerging artists to show their work in the UK and abroad. Since the opening of ALISN’s project space - The Magnificent Basement - in Spring 2010, Iavor has taken time out from the studio to concentrate on his curatorial work. He has realised a large number of projects in a variety of galleries and spaces in London, as well as Liverpool and New York.
In 2012, together with Royal Academy painter Isabella Easton, Iavor opened the Lubomirov-Easton Project Space.
