People often called them propaganda. Well it is so, as it was made to glorify the ideology. Buildings were decorated with mosaics of happy and idealized Soviet citizens. Difference science achievements were glorified. Heroes were the main topic of those murals – heroes of war and heroes of peaceful work.
Nowadays you can meet them less and less often, as they decline and decay and nobody preserve those. Here are some of those works.
Most of the times you can’t even know the name of the artist.
All information of those artists is lost.
Many of them were destroyed either on purpose or by the simple neglect. Also many old buildings were removed together with the artwork.
This art had to tell people about their fellow people.
It was glorifying the system that has been collapsed long ago.
At least on this website we can preserve some of those, for the future generations.
