11 Leonid Baranov Paintings of Russian Countryside

Leonid Baranov Paintings of Russian Countryside

Posted on November 16, 2006 by team

Leonid Baranov is an artist from Ekaterinburg city who draws the modern life in Russian village.

Heroes of his works look like real people from Russian countryside.

He never became famous or rich, and he prefers to drink a lot of vodka as a real Russian and doesn’t care much about the missing fame.

Still in his pictures I find something attractive.

    I think the second picture down would have been better without the jeep. It looks out of place.

  6. Ian says:

    The third picture reminds me of the Swedish(?) book The Tomten, about a mysterious farm sprite. Anyone else see the connection?

  7. Eskafolon says:

    It is drawn beautifully.
    But it is too naive. The author is far from people and Russian Village.
    It is sad.

  8. Diana says:

    But it is far from reality.
    1. Nowadays practically everybody has mobilephone in the village, and of course nobody dresses like that. This is the picture of 50s may be.
    2. There was something about, tha all russians drink a lot of vodka – hahaha, no.
    3. I think this car is really the policecar. Anyway, it looks like it is.
    4. Samovar???? People use teapots.
    5. The houses are setuated anotherway.

    “But at the contry dont seem young man.
    All young people going in to St. Peterberg or Moscow.”

    Young people live in villages, but less then old.
    Why only Mosc. and Spb???

    It’s not a police car because: 1.There is no flasher(blinkenlight) 2.There is no proper car painting.
