In the global arena, every country has its image, but how would they look as people?
That was the question that Russian artist Anastasia Bulgakova thought about for a year before starting her latest project. “I draw personifications of different countries,” she wrote. “All of them will be militant and warrior-like, with dirt and blood. Not because of some political persuasion, but simply because that what I always draw in any case, and the idea of warrior-countries gives a lot of creative freedom.”
From an American that’s a bit naive and idealistic to a silent Japanese guy with a suspicious smile, you’d easily recognise these ‘people’ if you met them in the street.
Below some of them, and more here.
Obviously and without a doubt here’s my favourite, “The King of ice.”
Everyone sees him as too friendly, but no one realises that the NEVER LOST A WAR. Even war of 1812, when Mr.America tried to take his land, Mr. Canada burned down Mr. America’s house and took HIS land. When they stopped fighting, Mr.Canada gave back all the land he gained and called it a draw, even though he won.
To sum up: most countries will kill you and only Canada will play hockey with you instead.
Canada is AMAZING!!
