Yanko Tihov

Yanko Tihov is a prize-winning painter and print-maker who trained in Sofia and works in London. He is well known for his series of works inspired by sociopolitical changes to the geography of the world map.
In his limited edition passport-based prints, the design is determined by the colours and motifs of each country’s passport, which the artist carefully matches and re-creates within the correct national borders. The texts, seals and coats of arms which adorn the covers are gilded with real 24 carat gold, successfully capturing their individual details.
