Pictures of Nenets life:
When it became possible, he started to paint nude and erotic paintings. There is a lot that is identifiable from the 60s, 70s and 80s in the pictures: furniture, crockery, wallpaper – all little details. Despite his age, he continues to paint that sort of subject and exhibit his work across the motherland.

The last picture (the one with the carnations of mourning) lead to sad thoughts about the fate of the artist…
Thank you very much! It’s all great, both the pictures and the names. I loved it, really )))
This is wonderful! A whole layer of memories))) Thank you for your wonderful posts!
It’s funny that the men in the pictures look like the General Secretaries of the Communist Party in their youth. In the first, the hero looks like a young Gorbachev, the 8th, a young Stalin, the 9th, Brezhnev)))
Apparently he’s only ever seen one woman naked…
