Since the mid 70's was one of the key figures of social art, painter, graphic artist, sculptor. Works are based on an ironically radical combination of recognisable symbols and stereotypes of the Soviet ideology and global mass culture. By playing with images, the artist debunks both the political Soviet myth-making, as well as the capitalist fetishism of commodities. Works are in the MOMA New York, the Tretyakov Gallery, the Russian Museum.
