    The artist's paintings are distinguished by a stable architectonic composition, most often constructed on the principle of the assemblage. Familiar architectural elements, signs-symbols, letter inscriptions are incorporated in them in diverse correlations and proportions. At the same time, painterly tissue of the canvas is many-layered, combining smoothly applied paint with a more expressive texture, local collor with subtle gradations of tone, clear, legible forms with allusions of a sui generis diffusion of objects in space. All these features of Nikolay Todorov's works contribute to make up the physiognomy of an original Bulgarian artist, one of the few who have accepted the challenge to interpret the image of the unfamiliar, the “other".
