Vladimir Dubossarsky & Alexander Vinogradov
Vladimir Dubossarsky & Alexander Vinogradov are two Russian painters that somehow manage to work and paint together. Both live and work in Moscow. In the early part of their career together they adopted the style of socialist realism, an officially sanctioned art practice under the soviet regime. Their early works resembled posters for non-existent thrillers and sleazy porn flicks. In 2001, Dubosarsky and Vinogradov made a transition from the socialist fantasy to the ideals of mass media using celebrity and pop culture as a focal point and statement. The following pieces are from more recent collections; 2009 – 2012.
