In 1974, Temenuga Todorova signed a contract with “Technoimpex” and went to work as a teacher, specialist engineer, in the Kingdom of Morocco. With her went the four-year-old second son in the family – Yasen Todorov, born in 1970. Viktor Todorov visited and stayed with them several times for long periods of time between 1975 and 1980.

In Morocco, he prepared and created several exhibitions of paintings with Moroccan motifs – mainly landscapes. In one of the exhibitions, Viktor exhibited large-format photos of his most significant sculptural works and monuments at that time. The Moroccan public initially questioned whether the author is a photographer, and subsequently everyone was shocked when they realized that these are his works.

The exhibitions went with great success and interest – almost everything was sold and Viktor even received a series of orders from local customers. Reviews in the press and periodicals were very flattering.

Viktor Todorov’s Moroccan period proves once again that his art, including the monumental one, is not conjunctural, but universal and has world qualities. Due to the great interest, after his return to Bulgaria, Viktor created a series of paintings based on his impressions of Morocco and exhibited them several times on different occasions.
