Red Army Goes West

I came across this inspired piece of graffiti/urban art.

In the centre of the Bulgarian city of Sofia, there’s a glorious piece of sculpture dedicated to the Red Army. Coincidentally just after Sofia’s Design Week, the statues emerged in the garb of western icons ranging from Superman to Ronald Macdonald. Superhero spotters out there will easily recognise the rest of the western superheroes. Appropriately, the graffiti underneath it says ‘Moving with the Times’.

The artist responsible has been dubbed the Banksy of Bulgaria. Not by me, I might add.
