Bulgarian War Memorial Vandalized… And Never Looked So Damn Good!

 

According to Gawker‘s Seth Abramovitch a public monument to the Soviet Armed Forces in Sofia, Bulgaria was vandalized spectacularly over the weekend. The statues of the Second World War soldiers were painted to resemble such candy-colored figures of capitalist iconography as Superman, Ronald McDonald, Santa Claus, Captain America and The Joker. The spray-painted writing beneath it says the hack now puts the statue “in step with the times!”

Today, Bulgarian Minister of Culture Vezhdi Rashidov denounced the act as “vandalism…We are the only ones led by some kind of destructive force when it comes to monuments of socialism.” The kid in red on the skateboard just thinks it’s awesome. [sofiaecho.comphoto via AP]

Stefan Kanchev (1915-2001) was a prolific Bulgarian graphic designer who is still famous for his many logos. The marks are all crisp, clever, and immediately effective. A website of his work has recently been assembled by a team of graphic designers and web developers who have taken it upon themselves to dig up his 1000+ logos and other designs. Somebody get this man a Wikipedia entry!
