Destructive Creation is a Bulgarian group of anonymous activists dealing with urban art. They carry out actions, especially illegal ones, in which they change the urban environment in order to send social and political messages or simply to improve the environment for the benefit of the people. The group became popular in 2011 – repainting the soldiers from the monument of the Soviet army in Sofia as American comic book characters. The intervention, which became known as In Step with the times, attracts public attention in Bulgaria and around the world.

Kokimoto

Kokimoto is the natural continuation of Kaloyan Iliev and does not exclude him but complements him. It is a summarizing name and a characteristic image of an artist who leaves behind a body of work that challenges all definitions and eludes any qualifications. Moreover, through it, I aim to free myself from the narrow-mindedness, hypocrisy, delusions, complexes, and hatred so characteristic of today's society. It is not perfect and never will be, and despite my own issues, I strive to create a better reality through my work and everything associated with it. In this way, on the border of kitsch and the cult of idols, I expose my own personality. Through the message and drama of the embodied idea, the image created by me becomes a style that erases the differences between man and woman, human and animal, religion, and identity. And once touched by it, one loses oneself in the ironic, critique-realistic, and impractical world of Kokimoto, to find oneself.
