We are very happy to introduce the last of the 5 bright, talented artists we have worked with for our project “Bulgarian Symbols” – the charming Kaya Kolishka.
Bulgarian Symbols artist – Kaya Kolishka
Kaya decided to pick the Bulgarian rose as something traditional and timeless. Her idea was to present this flower in a more stylized and contemporary way and thus create a beautiful illustration, fitting perfectly with the concept of our new line of T-shirts. The rose and especially the rose oil are often compared to liquid gold for a reason. The tradition of picking roses has been deeply embodied in Bulgarian culture and traditions for centuries.
Here are a few words from Kaya herself about her work on the project:

Did you learn something new from this project?
I learned to look much deeper into every detail.

I will just invite them to come and visit me.
