Summary/Abstract: In his works Chavdar Mutafov poses the problem how to read his texts. He creates his words on the basis of a specific concept of art, which I define as art of the searching form. Developed as a possibility of self-identification, art seeks its forms in a diversity of artistic techniques and the plastic stylization of the word is one of them. Plastic stylization is created in the art concepts of the modern artists. Observations of the features of Chavdar Mutafov’s “word painting” have been previously made by Edvin Sugarev, Katya Zografova, Lyubomir Milchev, Dimitar Avramov. Mutafov creates his painting into two parallel plans – objective and abstract. The sequence of object and abstraction takes part in the phenomenon of the plastic transformation of the image. Plastic line of the image is noticeable for one more feature: frequently it is especially, deliberately aesthetic. The principle of animation is another typical technique of plastic stylization in Mutafov’s works. The principle of animation brings us to one of the great phenomena in the “Dilettante” novel: plastic images of emotionally experienced philosophical reflection. Plastic stylization of emotional experience which creates philosophical reflections is among the most expressive techniques in the human space rendering in the novel. Mutafov also utilizes the typical techniques of the fragment and ornament. Geometry figures play special role in the development of his plastic images play. Mutafov creates artistic messages throughout the figures of line, circle, spiral and sinusoid. All these techniques reveal the rich artistic potential of plastic stylization through words.
