20 Paintings By A Schizophrenic Girl And How She Explains Them

Paintings By A Schizophrenic Girl And How She Explains Them

Posted on December 19, 2011 by

These are paintings made and commented on by a Ukrainian girl suffering from schizophrenia.


Two workers in disgusting orange vests did their work and lapsed into daydreams. The first one is trying to tell her fortune and find out who her husband will be. She’s very focused on that. The second one has already found her happiness and is trying not to lose it. Her eyes are squint and mysterious. Women’s fate is as unsteady as the wind in powerlines…

Blue wallpapers like the water of the Sea of Azov.

Semyon Budyonny’s graddaughter is pondering over her hard life. On her table she has just a genetically modified apple and pear. Her clothes and her sole have worn out and it is her piercing that reminds her of times when she, just like her grandfather, galloped on hot Donbass studs. 

Former turner and now invalid is waiting for a postman to bring him his pension.

Roly-Poly has prostheses after an accident at work. He misses his co-workers and factory where he used to work. Can his grandfather and grandmother help him?

Evening dreams.

This tea pot was lucky to have been turned into a distiller and he is proud of that. However, his friends, other tea pots,  know that today you’re on top and tomorrow, a shrewish housewife will crush you with a sledgehammer…

Lilac is blossoming.

Dusk is falling… But production and work never stop. The old dog knows, aware of his uselessness, that noone is going to feed this barking lazy loafer, so he goes his way leading to nowhere…

Damn you, Zinka!

The worker of an aerodrome is thinking about her sin. Yesterday, she diluted fuel with water to steel some of it and the plane crashed. Now, ghosts of dead pilots are following her. Today she has done the same and wonders what is going to happen. She feels ashamed and the entire world is turning red just like her cheeks.

Damn you, bedhopper!

Today, he sniffed glue for the first time… He dreams that he is a wonderful fairy, flying over Donetsk on a white unicorn. He hasn’t noticed aliens yet who landed behind his back… Don’t look back, fellow! Let the enchantment last!

Serezhka Lebedkin’s spring.

Deceived investors of a construction firm are standing in the heat… Shameless liers have built those tiny homes which are small even for a kid. It is only the mine which sets their mind at rest…

These villagers are playing a love game with each other and everything seems to be all right. The woman doesn’t know, however, that yesterday her husband was bitten by a werewolf and the transformation has already begun. The nail on his right bid toe is ominously shining!

But the cow knows everything because she has been attacked by a pig werewolf who ate some of her udder too. Her snout is evil and her eyes are lacklustre…

This kangaroo woman from Dagestan is thinking… It is not easy to be married to a dwarf who suffers from allergy to women’s hair. He is so small, unprotected and vulnerable. The sun is almost down and soon the man will go into the pouch of his wife where his twin brother is already sleeping.

    Do you really have to censor her breasts in a painting? oO

  2. wing says:

    By today’s standards, these paintings are excellent, very creative. They do not deserve the comments in the text that rather desperately attempt to be witty and funny. My, you Russkies certainly have a very heavy sense of humour. Could this have to do with hiding from history, I wonder? (The FSB orders you to purge this comment).

  3. AnonymousCoward says:

    I fail to see the weirdness in these paintings.

  4. joe says:

    but now we know the boxes come in other colors besides black.

  5. YJ says:

    Do you really have to be that insecure about yourself.

  6. petrohof says:

    the censorship on er is pathetic. it is no longer soviet times, move on.

  7. afa says:

    Need to put a pink square on the tits of a draw ? Really ?

  8. Cindy says:

    At least she explains the paintings. I hate art where I’m like “wtf?”
    And, yeah, it’s pretty dumb to censor painted breasts.

  9. openeyed says:

    Very nice!

    First permit me to be explaining that I am not to be having affiliations with the staffs of the englishrussia website and do not, dear readers, purport to address as representative. Many readers have commented on the “blacking out” of women’s breasts on the englishrussia site but I believe there is reason for it. Remember that the purpose of this site is to make Russian [and other] photo blogs accessible to a great many peoples of the world who would not otherwise be able to even find them, let alone read them, without benefit of translations. It is in the view of this goal that the “censorship” occurs: In many, many parts of the world the englishrussia website would be blocked by the governments if a single nipple were to reveal its shocking self. That would mean that the persons in these sanitary lands would never get to see any this site… Even in wild and crazy Amerika, viewing nipples on an office computer can get a person fired from their job as a cubicle drone.

    Remember that they still give a link to the source, in most cases you may go directly there and see the original version, as long as the watchful eyes of your large brother permit you to be doing so.

      There is no magical nipple-finder tool that blocks out all websites with a nipple on them

      This is art, looking at, say, David’s dong will not get you fired even in ‘crazy Amerika’

    • alessio says:

      Well Thank you for explaining!
      I am a free spirit and Big brother really hates me!
      I was even kicked out of the NATO army.Life is hard but I am happy to NOT be a drone for no one

      greetings :-)

    The tragedy of schizophrenia is that the brain is abnormal where the inner regions “communicate” with the higher regions in disturbing, garbled, and violent “speech.” No cure, only drug therapy used to dull/retard the communication.

  12. CZenda says:

    I checked the originating site and it seems the captions were added by the site, not the author.

  13. JP says:

    I can only draw stick people… These paintings are great .

  14. PDRS says:

    Those pictures are real, you could check other galleries on http://pdrs.dp.ua/art/art1.html

  15. gustradamus says:

    So organic, really painting what she knows, you can gather alot about her from the paintings, where shes from, her views and influences. And her explanations make alot of sense, even for a Schizo.

  16. Mark Alexander says:

    The paintings are average. But, Their descriptions give them their breadth, depth and life.

    Taken as a unit, of text and picture as a summed whole, they become viable art. Half visual, half quasi poetic Dadist.
    The commentator at the top is a bafoon.

  17. Republic of Catyes says:

    You put squares on pencil-drawn nipples, but what about all the boobs on the ads below? I first thought this was a porn site!

  18. jo pa says:

    Dear Painter, Forgive Anzhelka and be her friend again, she may care a lot for yet but alcohol brought out her worst, frequent with drinking. Your friendship with her could be special! You are talented, your heart has beauty! XXX OOO
