Stefan Kanchev

These charming stamps were hand drawn by applied graphic artist Stefan Kanchev. Inspired by Bulgarian fairytale and folklore, they demonstrate the artistry of a man honoured as 'National Artist' by the Bulgarian state in 1971. Precise, clear and full of colour, they retain their graphic integrity at any size. These stamps represent his national heritage as well as his eye for clean, sharp graphics that came to represent modern design.
