A new mini sculpture popped up by Kolodko – Watch out for Winnie-the-Pooh

Only a couple of days after the figure of the lasagna-loving cat Garfield was spotted in town, another famous cartoon character got depicted in a mini sculpture by guerrilla artist Kolodko.

We have just reported that urban artist Mihajlo (or Mihály) Kolodko placed a mini sculpture of Garfield at the University of Veterinary Medicine Budapest. And now, another cartoon celebrity popped up: the lovable bear who is 'short, fat, and proud of that'. The stories of Winnie-the-Pooh, written by English author A.A. Milne, have been translated into many languages, including Hungarian. In celebration of the birth anniversary of the Hungarian translator Frigyes Karinthy, Kolodko has created a mini sculpture of the adorable bear. Find it right outside of the birthplace of Karinthy: 1071 Budapest, 27 Damjanich utca.
