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.
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.
