Daniel Bozhkov is a Bulgarian-born conceptual artist based in New York City. He employs a variety of media, from fresco to performance and video, and works with professionals from different fields, using different strategies to activate public space. Bozhkov enters the worlds of genetic science, department mega-stores, and world-famous tourist sites as an amateur intruder/visitor who also functions as a producer of new strains of meaning into seemingly closed systems.

Bozhkov received the 2007 Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome, and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, Andy Warhol Foundation, Art Matters, and Artslink. He has exhibited at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in New York, Santa Monica Museum of Art, IKON Gallery in Birmingham, United Kingdom, Skulpturenpark Berlin Zentrum, Contemporary Art Center in Cincinnati, Arthouse at Jones Center in Austin, Texas, and the Contemporary Art Center in Atlanta. His work has been presented in international exhibitions such as the 6th Mercosul Biennial in Porto Alegre, 9th Istanbul Biennale in Turkey, the 1st Moscow Biennial of Contemporary Art in Russia and the 9th Baltic Triennale in Vilnius, Lithuania.

Daniel Bozhkov is represented by Andrew Kreps Gallery in New York.
