    Hammer and Sickle replaced with Knife and Syringe? Excellent political statement - and this is coming from a Russian.

    Thank you for the replies - yes indeed, Vyper got it right, since Russia never got a new symbol, i decided to create one by myself - one that reflects the life in modern Russia.

    Yes, I am russian, but to be honest, I dont see any hope in this place. I just want to get out of here desperately. Once someone gives me ANY opportunity, work in US, whatever, I'm out of here TOMORROW.

    I will be doing a serie of paintings with one subject - Russian life today. This one is kind of an introduction to it. Poohgee, I agree about your comments about details and head, if you have more, I'd gladly hear them. Thanks.

    This might be a stupid question, but.... Is the symbol suggesting drugs and violence? i don't live in russia or hear much about the country.

    Ckeu I totally agree with you about Russia. I was born in moscow and 5 years ago I moved to Canada. and when I compare Canada with Russia...Canada seems like heaven. I like your painting, but it doesnt speak to me about drugs and violence because I see a good looking, healthy female as the main subject.

    Really? I don't see that at all. What I see in this image is someone who is pretty, but tired, with too much makeup and too little hope; a depressing, dready landscape, capped with violence and drugs. I'm very glad I don't live there anymore.

    Not a bad image, I would change the woman's hair a bit. It looks as if she has a helmet on. Other than that, it is a good and poignant piece.

    I saw this piece yesterday and it got me thinking about Russia, a country I would like to visit one day and experience. Growing up in America during the Cold War and the Reagan administration (and Ford, and Carter, ok, I am in my 30's) I was always fascinated by this country and especially its myths and legends. Then I received an email today from some Russian site, out of the blue (Kavkaz Center) some sort of weird "news" or "fact" website and saw this:

    "ATTENTION! Administration of Kavkaz-Center informs that russian special services in an effort to carry out a provocation are sending out unsolicited emails (SPAM) to internet users on behalf of our agency. Kavkaz-Center notifies that it has no relation to this."


    I think I will go back to wearing my aluminum foil helmet to keep my thoughts from being read by aliens and Russian special services. Keep up the good work, ckeu, I hope to see more work from you. Sorry about your wanting to get away from Russia, if you want out so bad, I do hope you make it.
