Five parts of the world, which show the spiritual power of three international religions, five years of travelling, one exhibition: this is the outcome of the daring initiative undertaken by British architect and painter Doug Patterson.

Inspired by the example of other travelling painters of the 18th and 19th centuries, he visits Mount Athos in Greece, Mount Sinai in Egypt, India, Bhutan and Tibet in search of the hidden essence of these religions. His paintings capture monuments, landscapes, people.

The result is impressive. You can see it in the halls of the Hellenic Foundation for Culture in Sofia as part of the organisation's campaign to popularise the Greek monuments which are on UNESCO's World Heritage List.

Patterson has his own design practice which has developed various projects ranging from designing movie studios to luxurious private yachts while his clients come from countries like the United States, Tajikistan, Saudi Arabia, Greece and others.

When: 20 September - 16 October
