In college, he majored in poster design at the beginning but by chance he got access to the tapestry art, i.e. the predecessor of fiber art. After studying for a year in National Academy of Art in Sofia, Bulgaria, he secured the only place and resolutely went to China to follow the footsteps of Professor Maryn Varbanov, the then pioneer in world tapestry art.
