The Russian Enigma
Over the last few weeks this site enjoyed a spike of visitors, nearly all from Russia. I've been trying to figure what caused this sudden interest. To no avail. The only music coming from Russia in this year's top 100 wasn't painted yet, until today. May it serve as bait. I like to know ho or what linked to this site. There have been a number of Russians in the top 100 the past few years, I've painted portraits of Alexander Scriabin, Dmitri Shostakovich, Reet Hendrikson, a portrait of a Chukchi shaman, and no less than five Pussy Riot paintings. Well, here's number 6. The that's being illustrated by this painting is Kill All Sexists! in a version from the HBO documentary film Punk Singer. Can I add that Nadya Tolokonnikova is one of the most beautiful women in the world?
