Mr Evil - Welcome To Russia & Some Ads
Mr Evil is a young Russian artist (photography and rap) who provides a totally transgressive and iconoclast imagery of his country (but there's irony in it, a punk way to show us the caricature of what occidentals imagine to be Russia) or of some products, what he calls ads although I'm not sure they are appreciated by the companies. A very stunning and exciting approach of images. Hope to see more in a near future. He's faced some problems with the police in St Petersburg then in Moscow but he seems to take all that with quite a black humour, a way to react we would like to see more often.
