It’s beautifully accurate when it comes to stereotyping a region and its people, and as Martin Vargic, the young artist behind this world map of stereotypes, it took a lot of research and hard work in order to make it happen.
“The Map of Stereotypes is based on a normal world map I did, which took around three months to make. The first version Map of Stereotypes, released in 2014, took around six more weeks to finish. The second, much more extensive 2.0 version was made specially for the book. It took two additional weeks and contains more than 5,000 original labels.”, Martin told BuzzFeed.
“In addition to English, I also searched for them in German and Spanish. To add to that, I interviewed about a dozen of my friends and family members about the various national stereotypes they knew. The map also contains a large number of pop culture references from various popular movies and pieces of fiction.”, he added.
