Tonight's queer artist feature is Kristian Chalakov
Kristian is a young illustrator from Plovdiv, Bulgaria. Known for his style and aesthetic that combines elements from Bulgarian/ Balkan folklore, communist propaganda imagery, pop culture and above all queer culture.
His art is all about telling stories, creating characters, bringing representation to marginalized groups and their experiences across his home country Bulgaria. Playful, symbolistic and traditional with a unique personal touch. I am adding few of my illustrations that combine traditional folklore with a modern queer twist.
