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.
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:
Trying not to be negative.
Working in a call center and drawing in my free time.
White like an empty sheet of paper.
Saving and restoring old houses.
My sweet cousin with her imagination, my best friend with her bravery and my mother with her patience.
A contemporary point of view of one of the most recognizable Bulgarian symbols.
I learned to look much deeper into every detail.
I will just invite them to come and visit me.
T-Shirts with Kaya’s design can now be exclusively purchased at Gifted Sofia – 24 Ivan Denkoglou Str.
