It`s not shopped. How do I know - I`m from Sofia. The lady in the second picture is not painting the monument, actually she has just finished cleaning it. The red spot is from a permanent dye from years before. :)

Isn`t it possible that the government allowed this to happen, and the paints used were able to be washed off?

@primetimekin

It is not done by "Soviets". It is done by Bulgarians, who were on the Nazi side during the majority of the WWII. They switched sides when Soviets knocked on their door. The Soviets liberated Bulgaria from occupying Nezis and today some punk thinks that this is cool.

Graffity says "Keep pace with current times(history)". Well, i guess St. Claus, Superman and McDonalds liberated Bulgaria and are Bulgarian best friends.

History is history. We could do this to many monuments around the world and write "Keep it updated" underneat.

Just stupid. Regardles what Soviet regime did to Bulgaria it was Soviet soldiers who liberated Bulgaria from the Nazis. This is Bulgarian way of showing how grateful they are.

History is history! You can`t change it just like you can`t change what you had for lunch yesterday. Suggesting to melt the monument just because you don`t like what has happened is stupid and pointless.

Just as an FIY things where better under so called Soviet rule. A lot better. Now since we are free from it the whole country has become corrupt and you can bribe anyone. So yeah in "Soviet" time you wouldn`t have this crap happening.

I feel like this had to have been allowed to be done. If this is a public monument there is no way someone would have had enough time to do as much detail as they did without someone catching them. Mad props though to whoever did it though.

this was done by the soviets, so I guess its a way for them to forget

This is REAL graffiti, not vandalism!

Real graffiti is art with a message. This is paiting over a Communist Red Army statue with iconic American images. Can`t give a bigger "F- You" artistic message to communism then this. Awesome work of graffiti and I salute the artist!

[quote]Wheres "supermans" hat gone?
There are too many differences between the first and second photo.[/quote]

The hat is still there, and there are no differences. The first picture was taken from a little farther away, and maybe at a slightly different angle. It`s the same statue.

I think graffiti when done right can be awesome and beautiful. This however is pure vandalism. If you`re going to do graffiti....
1)You should never damage peoples personal property, eg houses, cars, garages, fences etc. Stick to public infrastructure like overpasses, trains, busses, public walls, fences and the like.It doesn`t make it right, but atleast it`s not coming out of one persons pocket to clean up.
2)Tagging is not graffiti and it`s not art it`s just scribbling. Yeah some people have nice handstyles that they were famous for(Stay High 149 for example) but Learn to piece/character and mural if you want any respect. Well done stencils are pretty cool too (Banksy etc)
3)NEVER destroy somebody else`s artwork, it`s just a dick thing to do and I have no respect for it. I especially hate when a nice mural is ruined by toy arsed taggers or like the above a war monument is disrespected.

Yea, but not nearly as much time and money as it took to remove the f***ing Red Army from Bulgaria! They ought to melt this ugly rotten piece of $#!+ into a puddle of slag.

Soviet monuments in independent countries deserve this. They`re not under the Soviet rule anymore, they should take those statues down.
