Summary/Abstract: The paper examines Chavdar Mutafov’s theory of modern art, based on the concepts of style, subjectivity, spirituality and synthesis, and explores the connections between the avant-garde artist and W. Kandinsky (as regards the concept of spirituality in art and the synthetic art), V. Voringer (on the matter of abstraction and sensation), L. Curtius (about ideoplastic art) and H. Barr (concerning the metaphor of the inner eye). Mutafov’s aestheticism emphasizes the dynamics of stylistic processes such as impressionism, aestheticism, expressionism, primitivism and the arrival at a brand new objectivity – banal art as a revision of expressionism. At the heart of Mutafov’s artistic experiment lies the thesis of art’s duality – a synthesis between the decorative and the banal.
