Kiro Urdin was born in Strumica, Macedonia. He studied law before moving to Paris in 1974, where over the years he became Macedonia's best-established and best-selling painter. Since then, Urdin moved to Belgium while continuing to spend time in his homeland of Macedonia.
Of the many remarkable projects in Urdin's life, undoubtedly the one that stands out is his Panetarium. A painting, ballet, movie and interactive experience. With his boundless energy and drive for exploration, Urdin spent more then one year travelling the world while working on "Planetarium". This painting covers a total of 24 square meters. This journey has developed into a multimedia project, with a synthesis of several arts including painting, cinema, photography, music, dance, theatre and literature. Urdin brings together artists from around the world into an art movement called "planetarism". Urdin describes this as "One point everywhere, everything in one point". Artist starts to recognize and practise his idea as "all arts in one and one art in all arts".
