‘Banksy of Bulgaria’ Transforms Red Army Soldiers Into Superheroes
The latest in a long line of political vandalism in Bulgaria, reinvents statues of soviet soldiers as superheroes.
The Joker, Superman, Santa Claus, Robin and Ronald McDonald were all part of the latest public statue transformation in Bulgaria. Located in Sofia’s town square, the Red Army soldier statues are just one of numerous, long-running ‘attacks’ on the monuments dedicated to the former Soviet Union.
So far no one has claimed the work. However, the anonymous artist has earned the title ‘Banksy of Bulgaria.’
