Bulgaria best known caricaturist Donyo Donev dies at 78

Date: 30.11.2007

Bulgaria's prominent caricaturist and animation artist Donyo Donev, best known as the father of the Three Fools, died Wednesday morning after a long illness. He was 78.

Donev created more than 100 animation movies and mastered to perfection the genre of political caricature.

The artist made a short foray into politics in 2001 after the spectacular return from exile of former king Simeon Saxe-Coburg. His run for MP on the ticket of NDSV party was cut short after he was exposed to have collaborated with the secret police under communism.

Afterwards he dedicated all his time to his caricatures and students at the National Academy of Arts.
