About artwork.
This is an oil painting on the found soviet-era portrait of Lenin. The canvas is a little damaged.

Decades after the collapse of the USSR, on the territory of the former Soviet republics, it is still possible to find a lot of artifacts imbued with the propaganda of that era. All forms of art were forcibly subordinated to the advancement of the ideology of Marxism-Leninism. Everything that did not fit into this paradigm was eradicated.
Portraits of Lenin occupy a special place among those artifacts. Moreover, the number of the leader’s image created over the seven decades amazes.
All this was done to the detriment of the free evolution of art and has stopped its development for more than half a century.
We will never know what the art of the peoples of the USSR could look like if it was not oppressed. We can only look at what artists in the free world were doing at this time.
Namely to this goal, a series of works by Oleksandr is subordinated, who refines the found oil portraits of Lenin of Soviet times, combining them with famous works of Western artists.

PLEASE NOTE The buyer will be responsible for paying international customs fees, determined by the country the artwork is being shipped to. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to making a purchase.
