Plamen has been working in the iconography sphere since 1991. In every icon the artist is writing (painting) we can distinguish his unique style, precision and attention to detail. In his works, Plamen Kazakov is strictly following the canon of the Orthodox icon but with regards to the technology of the iconography itself, he has developed his unique techniques, after long years of work, which differ from the traditional. His icons can be seen mainly in Meteora, Greece. One of the largest and most important complexes of Greek Orthodox monasteries in Greece.

Most of our icons are painted on solid natural wood boards (0.8 inch thick). The rest of the materials used are strongly individual and depend on the techniques used by every iconographer. In most cases they use egg tempera, oil or powder paints, varak, gold leaf (foil), varnish and other materials. Following the Byzantine Art traditions, every icon is layered with a linen cloth, glued and hand sanded to a smooth finish.
