Kyiv Art Exhibit: Yanukovych Naked Portrait
« on: May 02, 2014, 01:49:59 AM »
Of Course The Ousted President of Ukraine Commissioned a Nude Portrait of Himself

During the last weekend of April, Kyiv saw an exhibit of all the sumptuous ridiculousness deposed Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych had stashed in his villa at Mezhyhirya, just outside of Kyiv. It's stunning that the president of a country constantly teetering on the brink of economic collapse had the funds to purchase so many posh, unnecessary things, including countless images of, well, himself.



Two likenesses in one shot. I can't tell if it's pointillism or just crap.



And another...in brass?



Talk about a lasting message.



A leader of men. Who runs from the battlefield.



Lots of icons.



Note his wife's timeless baroque dress. So awesome. (I think this is actually a portrait of his mistress)



We probably don't need to see this.



I'm inviting him to my next party.

Are these all really his owning or was that made later for propaganda against him?

You think he would really have a nude painting done of himself and not give himself a horse dong?

Well that's why i ask, since media says it's from his villa while i'd find it hard someone has such pictures of himself there :D except maybe the Napoleon wars painting.

It might be. The Yugoslav wars so some far fetched propaganda so I wouldn't be surprised in the conflict in Ukraine sees some as well.

the exhibition was politically motivated having little to do with arts. some ukrainian artists condemned the exhibition not fearing the consequences.
