I was born in 1979 in a small Bulgarian country-town called Targovishte. People know me by the names of Naste, Nasimo or Stanislav Trifonov. I started spraying Aerosol paint on walls in 1995 along with several friends graffiti artists and soon after we formed LBC (Los Bastardos Crew) – one of the first and most active graffiti crews on the Balkans. We left on our own paths in the year 2000 and I established a new crew NTN and started a new kind of street art which mixes traditional and graffiti style. #FineGraffArt came to be my personal crosspoint between contemporary painting and my previously developed street art style. Over the last few years I’ve often set aside the can to explore more traditional techniques. Recently, I’ve been mainly focused on painting with oil colors on canvas, also travelling the world and painting murals. I’ve been painting in Bulgaria, Canada, Great Britain, Germany, Austria, Italy, Belgium, Portugal, Poland, Czech Republic, Romania, Serbia, Greece, Kosovo, Turkey, India and China.
