Bulgarian Artist Turns Buildings into a Tetris Game

Bulgarian artist and photographer Mariyan Atanasov created a series of photos inspired by famous computer game Tetris and architecture in his country. This is his latest project and, if you know his previous work, you know that he’s always been inspired by minimalism and urban environments.

The project is called Urban Tetris and it shows buildings in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, arranged like the figures from the iconic game. Most buildings are examples of Soviet architecture typical for this part of the world. In Atanasov’s photos, they are suspended in mid-air and rotated to fall into designated places.

The simplicity of shapes and the contrast of buildings against the clear sky make Atanasov’s photos aesthetically pleasing. If you want to see more of his work, check out his Instagram page where he shares new things he does with the followers.
