Monsters rule the streets of Budapest - only figuratively, of course
Posted by Budnews · Apr 22, 2020

Empty streets of Budapest are filled with fantasy creatures of Hungarian graphic artists.

The streets of Budapest are almost extinct - we have seen beautiful videos about this in recent weeks. Or aren't they? Hype and Hyper design and lifestyle magazine, that focuses on urban life and innovations, invited a couple of Hungarian graphic artists and creators to revive the vacant spaces of the city with their works and fill Bertalan Soós' photos with colors, shapes, their own visual world and creatures.

And the result speaks for itself: colorful charming creatures overwhelmed the underpasses, the quay, Vörösmarty and Deák Squares. On the one hand, pictures show the lovely, colorful face of the city, which unfortunately is hidden now even from the locals, while on the other hand, these pictures can be considered as a curved mirror for society. Like this picture of a pigeon and a granny: in Hungary there is a rule that people over the age of 65 can only go to the shops and pharmacy between 9 AM and 12 AM, while younger people allowed to do so only after 12 AM. And the granny in the picture is ready to defend this prerogative even against pigeons...
