98 year old dobri dobrev, a man who lost his hearing in the second world war, walks 10 kilometers from his village in his homemade clothes and leather shoes to the city of sofia, where he spends the day begging for money.
though a well known fixture around several of the city’s churches, known for his prostrations of thanks to all donors, it was only recently discovered that he has donated every penny he has collected — over 40,000 euros — towards the restoration of decaying bulgarian monasteries and churches and the utility bills of orphanages, living instead off his monthly state pension of 80 euros.
This guy is so… awesome. Amazing. Inspiring.
OK crying. restored faith in humanity…
Featured Artist: Kate Madeira
Kate is 22 years old and from Nashville, TN. I originally came in contact with her work through a facebook group for “stitchers.” Her embroideries are delicate yet complex and incredibly beautiful. She certainly knows how to handle her thread and make it into wonderful pieces of art.
First featured artist on Novus NY!
A new contemporary art blog run by me and Matt Wilson about art events in NYC as well as exploring new artists from around the world!
