Propaganda Posters of Socialist Russia

4 Dec

The beginning years of the Soviet Union’s empire abducted art as a means to assure and communicate the glorious accomplishments made possible through the leadership of Lenin and Stalin, and the good book of Karl Marx. The paintings produced through the movement of Soviet Social Realism, in my opinion, are ridiculous. Their obvious agenda as a tool of propaganda overshadows any artistic aptitude. Though the rise of Constructivism proved to be a powerful method of engaging the public with a strong and progressive design.
