About the artwork

This contemporary artwork is one of four pieces made out of a huge soviet-era oil portrait of Lenin.

In my art project, I try to overcome the traumatic historical experience of my country by recycling propaganda artifacts of the soviet evil empire. It would be wrong to destroy these numerous images left after the USSR collapsed. It is important for people to remember the lessons of history to avoid repeating past mistakes. I want my recycled lenins to be more than just colorful pieces of art. Instead, they should serve as a reminder and a warning to never give political power to fanatics and mad people.

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.
