'Ripple' (2019-ongoing) is a series of abstract paintings on steel sheets created by taking on an experimental approach to etching, dipping the metal into a nitric acid bath and painting with pigment watercolours. The reaction between water - pigment causes rust in the metal and creates 'accidental' patterns. Within this series Boyana is playing with the reality of losing and regaining control while making the work.

'Tribe' (2016-ongoing) is a series of watercolour and acrylic portraits of the tribe Huli from Papua New Guinea. This particular tribe was the subject of this series because of the saturated colours of their masks and body paints. The purpose of this experimentation was to push the boundaries of watercolour and eventually take the "water" out and leave "colour" as the name of this new medium. By concentrating on the colour saturation and facial expressions, I have managed to portray the tradition and emotion of this tribe into these almost photographic images. 

'Ethno' (2015-2016) is a series of watercolour portraits of different ethnicities. These abstract portraits capture the emotion of the subject as well as their reality. The series was exhibited in the exhibition 'Ethno' in Bulgaria, 2016.

'Ra' (2014) is a series of watercolour paintings created in celebration of the Egyptian God of the Sun - Ra. Highly influenced by Ancient Egypt, this series captures the beauty of the sun and the art that is brought to us by its light.
