Vasnetsov, brother of famous Russian painter Viktor Vasnetsov. He was very much interested in painting old historical Russia in his own style and those illustrations are very charming and give you a feel of some fairy tale. Let’s see.
Natasha Yudina is a young artist from a Siberian city Tomsk in Russia. She chooses fur and knitting over traditional canvas and brushes and in doing so she succeeds in delivering. Her works are pretty nice and you definetaly want to see some more besides this plush-furry Lenin head she is holding on her laps. Also she is blonde.
“Soviet Photo” was a Soviet photo (obviously) magazine. It published mainly professional photos of Soviet photographers capturing everyday life of Soviet people.

Tattoos are pretty widespread in modern day Russia. Of course many choose to ink some usual things, but some choose pretty much interesting Slavic or Russian stuff on it.

“Best of Russia” is a photo contest held in Russia each year since 2008. It is supported by Russian museum and department of culture, however we doubt it is really featuring best of the best photos of Russia for the year. However some of the photos are pretty worth seeing so lets see all the works for this “Best of Russia 2016” contest. Most of the photos got captions and we translate them unchanged, some of them pretty weird but this is what photographers wanted them to be. More photos ahead:
