The summer is over but that doesn’t mean that the walks around the city have to stop. I have always appreciated street art a lot and I am always happy when I see some beautiful graffiti around.
Recently I was walking down Ivan Vazov street and encountered many beautiful graffitis there. They were all very impressive but the one with the little boy painted on the walls of the art shop Slanchogled caught my eye the most.
It wasn’t difficult to find out who is responsible for this beauty because there was a sign ’140 Ideas’. I found out that behind that name stands a group of four artists who have already created many remarkable graffities around Sofia and some other European cities. You can check their work here but of course walking around the town and seeing these pieces of art in real would be much more impressive.
I really appreciate when art is used not only for aesthetic purposes but also to imply some different kinds of problems – ecological, social and etc. So I was extremely happy to find out that these guys try to raise awareness for such problems with their works.
And here is another thing about Ivan Vazov street, it is named after the great Bulgarian writer Ivan Vazov and his house, which is open to public, is also on this street. So if you are interested in the life of Bulgarian writers at that time you can check it out.
