That recent graffiti by Bozko painted in October below of the ancient chupa chups symbolizes bribery and corruption practices among the decision-makers, a scourge in many countries affecting the households. Protests and strikes against that system, sometimes violent with people throwing stones, took place every evening in the capital

Good evening, Miguel,
Yes, I remember my Bulgarian friends have told me a lot about corruption in the Bulgarian government and the Parliament. But it was 2000. And I see the same situation in Bulgarian society today... Sad story. I like this Slav nation, good country good people, good climate with the warm sea...
I like your presentation of the art work. Well seen.
Happy New Year, my friend!

I think I would have needed to know more of maybe Bulgarian folklore to understand the symbolism of this painting, if I hadn't seen your note, but noone could be in doubt that this is an unpleasant figure that means no good to anyone. It's a very good piece of graffiti, painted with an obvious talent, and an interesting contribution to TE.

Dobar rad, lepo pokazan grafit.
Svaki grafit nosi neku poruku.
Dobar snimka i kontrast, elpe boje, lep grafit.

I do not read anything about Bulgaria, it appears very rarely in news, so I have no idea what is the situation there. Interesting graffiti. I usually hate them but this one is artistic and interesting. well observed and excellent presentation.
Warm regrads Malgo

I see regular graffiti artist at work, I know that a lot graffiti artists are great artists.
Sometimes understand we not the symbolic of the painting.
A nice composition, soft of colours, excellent presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Superb light and colors upon this beautifully painted wall, Miguel.
Funny and charming at same time.
One suggestion though: I'd try to crop the photo higher from the lower part, to avoid the paved area in FG.
Only my humble opinion.
Have a nice holiday-weekend,

Wonderful expressive modern art captured by your lens. It perfectly depicts corruption.
Corrupt politicians are like pests and parasites who are living of our hard earned earnings. So I think the mosquito like figure in the graffiti sucking blood closely depicts the corrupt people feeding of the society. Thanks for sharing an excellent photo.

An interesting and thought provoking work of art when combined with your note, and somewhat disturbing looking too, not a character I would want to encounter! Very vivid colors and a very nice composition, I really like that you included the ground in the foreground like this instead of a head on view, it makes the image a lot grittier.
All the best

Hola Miguel !!
The Graffiti is very well painted and it tells a strong message ..... good idea to present this type of photo in TE.
Nice crop and sharp details.

Corruption and bribery is everywhere. But here I see, there are talented people who speak out against it in such a way.
It is a great piece of wall painting. And you have captured it with wonderful colors and clarity. Your collection of graffiti has been much enriched with this one.
With best wishes,

Un grafitti que me gusta mucho en su conceptcion y estilo, ademas el motivo de denuncia es muy encomiable para el artista, un esplendido trabajo por tu parte en su reproduccion.
Muy buena nitidez y luminosidad.
Ten un buen dia.
Saludos muy cordiales.

Good evening, Miguel,
The long carrot nose is also suggestive of the lies told by Pinocchio, and judging by the length, quite a few untruths have been forthcoming from this analogy type of representation of the Bulgarian Government. Hope more honesty prevails in 2014! And you have a happy and travel filled year! Tfs!

I like this grafitti a lot and specially its meaning! I would surely take a photo myself if I were in Sofia! I like the composition with the iron poles and flower pots!
Good shot of a great work! I need to check more information about this artist!
Have a great New Year!

TFS this precious piece of art. really a fantastic job with excellent quality. I liked the style and these details of the mural.
macjake (49438) 2014-01-10 17:45
now thats different!
I'm a big fan of graffiti, in terms of art and using the subject as photography too.
the colors pop and the subject is extremely unique.
excellent choice to pick this one.

Wish you a nice day
