  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Yanko Tihov is a painter and printmaker who trained in Sofia and works in London.
    In his passport series, 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.
    Tihov has hand-painted the texts, seals and coats of arms which adorn the covers with real 24 carat gold, successfully capturing their individual details. The paint adds a unique layer to each work which beautifully reflects the light and enlivens the surface. Overall, his passport series serves as both a reminder of the laws and jurisdictions which bind individuals, and offers unique examples of contemporary cartography which beautifully captures the borders of today’s world.
