Joro Petkov was born in 1960 in the small town of Tchiprovtzi, Bulgaria. Renowned for its unique style of carpet design, Tchiprovtzi has a distinguished legacy as the home to many fine artists.
In 1973, already determined to make his mark as an artist, Joro moved to Sophia, Bulgaria, where he attended the prestigious Ilia Petrov School of fine art. After graduating in 1981, Joro enrolled at the Nicolai Pavlovich Academy of Arts where he concentrated on various printmaking techniques until his graduation in 1986.
Upon graduation, Joro accepted a general art teaching position at Petar Parchevich high school in Sophia. He continued in that capacity until 1991when he resigned his post to pursue his art career on a full time basis.
In 1992, Joro immigrated to Toronto, Canada, where he continues to follow his artistic endeavors, producing many fine original paintings on canvas and an array of delightful high quality etchings.
