About this listing

Artist: Jan van de Pavert.

Throughout history, murals have been used to tell stories, decorate, express dissatisfaction, and call upon the reader. The principles for the artist are encapsulated in the title of the work. Here, he blends history and painting together. He refers to the rise of abstract art in Russia with the red cross-shaped motifs. On the other hand, the style, symbols, and figures on the fresco are derived from Russian communist propaganda tools from the beginning of the previous century.
