OK, this may be two month old news but it's the first time I have seen this, how I don't know, guess I should buy a newspaper once in a while.
So an artist/painter & decorator in Sofia, Bulgaria has vandalized a monument depicting Russia's Red army "liberation" of Bulgaria from the Nazi's during world war 2, causing a lot of of debate and controversy only to end up being dubbed "The Bulgarian Banksy"... doh!
My history isn't the best but I'm pretty sure the Bulgarians were allies to the Germans during WWII and that no German soldiers were stationed in Bulgaria... so how the country was liberated, I honestly don't know? I do know that the Russian's "moved in" for a few decades of what some would call oppression.
Some people will be for it and others against it, I for one don't see a problem with the art since the scene being depicted never really took place, in fact I find the irony of the original statue to be quite creative in a propagandistic type of way. I do however feel bad for the soldier that's been painted to look like Wonder Woman, just not cool.
