June 18, 2011: Grafitti Artist Transforms Monument into Superman

Defaced Monument An unknown artist, dubbed the Banksy of Bulgaria, has defaced statues of Red Army soldiers located in Sofia, Bulgaria into popular fictional characters, including Superman.

    Centre stage in the transformed monument in Sofia is Superman. To his left is Santa Claus and to his right McDonald's mascot Ronald McDonald. Batman villain the Joker also makes an appearance.

    The monument the artist defaced was imposed on Sofia in 1954 to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Russia's liberation of Bulgaria during the Second World War.

    Monuments to Russia's dominance over Bulgaria are fair game to graffiti artists these days.
