22 Wrong Photo

Wrong Photo

The mayor of Kiev city, Leonid Chernovetsky. Yesterday one of the Britain's most popular newspapers has published an article about such nasty thing as paedophiles. They needed a photo to illustrate the article so they got one, probably from the online photo banks selling loyalty free photos cheap, probably by just searching for "lie detector" keyword.

well, it's not something where they could not not blur it, and published. But when Russian audience got access to the article they found out that blured-faced-guy is a hero of many Russian internet lore - the mayor of the Kiev city Mr. Leonid Chernovetsky, known in Russia as Leonid-Cosmanaut for his weird behavior, manners and statements.
Russian blind artist
21 The Story of the Blind Artist

The Story of the Blind Artist

The paintings you see in this post might seem not be worth publishing from the first site. The thing can make us look more closely at them is the story of the artist who brought them to life. What makes them special is that this person is... blind. I don't know if he is unique or there are some more people around the world who are totally blind but here his story. He was not blind from the birth. He lost his sight during a digging operation in the forests of Ukraine, where they tried to find remains of Russian soldiers who are considered to be missing since the World War 2. He got blew up on the 50 year old German Nazi land mine and since then he couldn't see with the both of his eyes. One of the Dmitri's works. Before this accident he had already some recognition among the local artist community and his works didn't look like those later ones. You can see one of his works when he still was able to see as the last photo of this post. Then when he lost sight he lost everything. He became a disabled person whom nobody needed or cared about. He was in deep depression, and once he has got a call from his old friend, who tried to support the artist and offered to conduct an public exhibition of his old works. Of course he agreed. Then they had some time before the exhibition and Dmitri - that is the name of our hero - decided to try to draw
something again to present at the ongoing exhibition, to show the world that he is still an artist, even with a missing sight. He called it "Even the longest way starts with a tiny step." At first he couldn't draw anything that reminded the sane painting. But after hours of practice and persistance he managed to give a birth to his first painting of his new life. Now there are 250 new works, created after the accident in which he lost his sight, and some of them are highly recognized by critics and were bought for private collections of Russian and foreighn art lovers. Dmitri, the blind artist. "When I see the works of Dmitri, I became ashamed of ourselves, how often do we complain, how often we say that life is not fair with us, and still we can see the world around us. But Dmitri can't, and still he doesn't complain, he works. Every his painting is a piece of the world he knew, he knows and he would know. We, proffesionals from art, don't care that he can't see - he still remains a proffesional artist for us. Of course, his style has been changed, but still he is a good colorist and stylist and we don't make any discounts on his wound, when saying this.", says Valentina Myzgina, the chief manager of Kharkov Art Museum.
