The largest street mural in Eastern Europe and the Balkans can now be seen in Sliven. The work is entitled "Zhar" (Embers) and is the work of world-famous Bulgarian graffiti artist - Stanislav Trifonov (Nasimo). One of the first street artists in Bulgaria, he started painting in public places in the mid-90s of the twentieth century when graffiti culture emerged in this country.

More than two decades later, his works can be seen on the facades of buildings around the world - Canada, Britain, Western Europe, the Balkans, Turkey, Russia, India and China. Stanislav Trifonov graduated with a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Veliko Tarnovo, which explains his distinctive feature of mixing contemporary graffiti techniques with classical art and painting. This is how his "Fine Graff Art" was born. Nasimo is the first graffiti artist in Bulgaria with an exhibition at the National Art Gallery "Square 500" in Sofia, presented in early 2020. His latest project in Sliven consists of 12 separate detailed and conceptually related murals, which focus on wine and human life. They can be seen on industrial containers for wine storage and cover an area of ​​over 1000 square meters.
