Summary/Abstract: This paper seeks to introduce authors, whose artistic oeuvres are linked to the concept of global nomads, in the context of the So Close, So Far exhibition. The exhibition has been held on a yearly basis ever since 2012 at the National Palace of Culture, Sofia to display works by contemporary Bulgarian artists living and working abroad. In its essence, So Close, So Far offers a panoramic view of the contemporary trends in the visual arts on a global scale, demonstrated by the artworks of Bulgarian authors. The overview of several artists that have participated in various editions of the exhibition is intended to give concrete examples and thus highlight the works of a specific group of contemporary Bulgarian painters, who have opted for developing their artistic careers beyond the national borders. Their reintroduction on the Bulgarian art scene contributes to the enrichment of the cultural life by drawing parallels between artistic movements globally and locally.
