Bozko, real name Bozhidar Simeonov, is a Bulgarian artist who lives and works in Sofia. Besides street art, he works in illustration, comic books, animation and set design. His characters are easily recognizable and strangely appealing in a morbidly adorable way.
While in Sofia, we stumbled upon just a couple of his street art works. First one is well-known and centrally located…
…and the other one is hiding in a residential area
This interview with the artist from August 2013, is a candid insight into his mindset, inspirations, and an excellent advice to up-and-coming artists, which is applicable to any profession: Don’t worry about anything, don’t take yourself too seriously, just work a lot and have fun doing it – then everything will be as it’s supposed to.
In September 2014, he had a personal exhibition in Berlin
