Three-dimensional art canvas recreates a legend from Tarnovo

Veliko Тarnovo artists created a tunnel to the secret treasures of Tsarevets. However, Nevena Lefterova, Evgenia Lefterova and Nina Kovacheva from GIART did not dig with shovels in Tsar Asen I Square, but created a mobile three-dimensional mural that blends with the environment and is part of street art. The attraction is a light tease to the residents and guests of the city. The canvas is not yet finished, but the three artists hope to be satisfied with the final result.

They were inspired by the legend, according to which there is a treasure under Tsarevets and decided to depict it in this way, to direct it to the history of the city. The work of the talented ladies from Veliko Tarnovo is part of the large-scale festival “Varusha South”, which begins on Friday precisely with the opening of the 3D canvas.

Varusha South

It creates a feeling that the entrance to the secret tunnel is located in the square. He is guarded by a skull warrior with an ax and a sword, and huge rats crawl on slats above his head.

The artists use 3D street art because it is attractive enough in itself. People become participants, step on the image itself, take photos as a memory. The 3D art is just now starting to gain popularity in Bulgaria, although the girls have been working diligently in this direction for the past 6 years.

The three artists work together in three-dimensional street art, they have studios in the old capital. They also tour Europe, from where they bring this type of art to Bulgaria. They make cartoons, paintings, portraits.

All three are convinced that art will defeat vulgarity, because the Bulgarian is waking up to culture in recent years. They all hope there is a great renaissance in this direction and through the very festival that will happen. Many activities are included. And for the first time in the city there will be something so big. This is an outstanding chance for all local artists and small business people who will be able to advertise themselves.

A festival with nearly 100 events is coming in the old part of Veliko Tarnovo

A three-day festival “48 hours Varusha South” with nearly 100 events will enliven the old part of V. Tarnovo on August 19, 20 and 21.

This is the first initiative organized by the people of the neighborhood, for the residents and guests of the old capital. It will offer a diverse program, gathering a maximum number of entertaining, informative, educational and sports events within 48 hours. They will be held at a total of five locations – the Yantra river beach, the Museum of Architecture, Samovodskata charshia, the panoramic terrace with the dandelions, the space around the monument to Nicola Piccolo. All events in the festival program will be open to the public.

The program starts on Friday afternoon on the beach, which was restored by Tarnovo Runs and TAM. For the events, the beach will be ennobled with a pool, garden furniture, hammocks and other amenities for the attendees. As the night draws to a close, events will move to the high street with concerts and guest DJs on three stages. For the climax of the festival on Saturday evening St. Stambolov” will be closed to cars between 8 p.m. and 12 a.m.

The Museum of Architecture, also known as the Kiselova kashta, which ceased operations years ago, will also come alive during the festival. There will be film screenings, exhibitions, lectures, discussions and architectural workshops.

The idea for the event started more than a year and a half ago as part of the “Open City” project, in which 40 participants took part. Then, the challenge of living in “Varusha South” was posed as a common question and topic of the residents of the neighborhood. The idea crystallized after many conversations and research into the neighborhood’s potential. The purpose of the event is to give an opportunity to any aspiring artist, owner of a restaurant, establishment, hostel, services or otherwise, to show creativity in order to realize their ideas, to reach a wider circle of people. With the announcement of the dates of the festival, the warm-up program for it also begins. Until its beginning, numerous exhibitions, workshops and other initiatives will be held in the neighborhood to reveal the potential of “Varusha South”.

You can check the scheduled events for each week on the Facebook page of Varusha South.
