Symbols of knowledge and ideas appear on the walls of a school in Bulgaria

2023. Nov. 16. | Community

Taker combined a stack of books and a light bulb with his usual splash effects. The idea is not too complicated: the books as knowledge and the light bulb as a symbol of thoughts and ideas, showing their connection.

This design is an older one, made for a request from Hungary, where education was the theme, and after Taker sent the visual design the client ghosted it and never got a response. The artist has received several comments saying that it would be nice to see his work in Hungary, so this could have been a home-made work, but it wasn't.

So Taker on the wall of the Petőfi Sándor Vocational School in Razgrad, in the northeast of Bulgaria.

A természet a legnagyobb kincsünk, amit minden áron óvni kellene

Nature is our greatest treasure and should be protected at all costs

We are all familiar with the infinite beauty and richness of nature, yet we often forget that this treasure is not infinite. The consequences of human activities, such as industrialisation, agricultural intensification and urbanisation, are causing serious damage to the environment. Now is the time to take our responsibility seriously and act to protect nature.
