Liliya Pobornikova’s nature-inspired sculpture brings to life the long-lost compelling beauty of everyday, mundane elements of nature.
Liliya Pobornikova is a Bulgarian illustrative sculptress living and working in Spain. She first got her wood sculpture degree after graduating from the National Academy of Arts and then got plenty of honors and awards for her nature-inspired sculpture throughout her extended art career. Today, Liliya’s work is recognized all over the world.
Liliya is largely inspired by nature: water, wind, plants, or just free compositions playing with contrasts, opposites, and reflections.

Nature—every little part of its perfection
All her life, Liliya had been connected with art. “I went to an art high school at the age of 13,” she says. “I also used to draw or play with clay long before that.” Later, Liliya studied wood sculpture at the Academy of Arts in Sofia and eventually started her exciting life as a professional sculptress traveling for art events all around the world. Perhaps what influenced her the most was the perfection of nature. Liliya’s biggest wish is to portray that perfect beauty through her art.
Recently, Liliya has been particularly drawn to the perfection of butterflies and their beautiful shapes and colors. She is currently working on a composition of 118 colorful butterflies made from iron and hand-painted so that each butterfly is different and unique.
