The Kukryniksy

kukr16The Kukryniksy is a Russian creative trio of artists, who lived and created during the Soviet time. The name is an abbreviation from the real artists’ surnames: Kuprianov Mihail (1903-1991), Krylov Porfiriy ( 1902-1990) and Sokolov Nikolay (1903-2000). Besides the classical painting, they were famous for their grotesque, burning posters on the topics of internal and foreign policy. With time their works became excellent examples of classical Soviet political caricature.
