Colour apartment block in Borjomi, Georgia. Possibly constructed for the military but I’m not 100% certain about this. If anyone has anymore information, I would be happy to hear from you?
ფერადი კორპუსი ბორჯომში, საქართველო. შესაძლოა სამხედროებისთვის აშენებული, მაგრამ ამის შესახებ 100% არ ვარ დარწმუნებული. თუ ვინმეს აქვს ინფორმაცია, მე ბედნიერი ვიქნები თქვენგან?

Some of my favorite iterations is Alice I’m Wonderland I’ve seen is this soviet era artwork by Gennady Kalinovsky. The line work is gives everything such variance and texture. Very reminiscent of Edward Gorey. #art #artstagram #aliceinthewonderland #illustration #ink #gennadykalinovsky #sovietera #childrensbook #artwork #fantasy

Full disclosure: Next to Carlo Collodi’s Pinocchio Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland is a favorite fantasy book of mine. Infinitely inspirational in all its whimsy. It’s also a favorite of mine art wise and finding new illustrations of it through the ages is a joy. Here are some amazing illustrations by Soviet era painter and illustrator Gennady Kalinovsky.  #art #artwork #illustrations #gennadykalinovsky #aliceinwonderland #sovietera #childrensbooks #artstagram #ink #whimsical #fantasy #alice #thecaucusrace #captaindodo #thecaterpillar

My daughter asked me to frame and hang this drawing I made when I was 13 in her room. It’s of some #fiercewoman on a cloud overlooking our appartement building in Moscow in #1990. Either I was into fast cars, #drag queens in #pagentdresses or I thought God was a woman. 
As a poster child of the late #sovietera, I’m an ex-atheist turned #agnostic and not a “nouveau #orthodox”. If there is a God I would love Her to a be fierce #dragqueen. #pride #morninggibberish #bringpeopletogether #childsdrawing

And this is what we call as a "ripple effect"!
How a small TV series on Chernobyl disasters must be giving sleepless nights to Russian Authorities!

Believe me, this series is among the best ones. Please watch it!!!!
P.S- And since then we thought cold war ended in 90s :P

Album Drop: The Soviet Tapes Vol. 1 by @fulgeance & DJ Scientist. Sampling old tapes and vinyl's from Soviet era Russia, this album is largely instrumental Hip Hop with traces of Breakbeat and the occasional MC feature, making for a satisfyingly bouncy collection of badass beats.

I spent the afternoon exploring subway stations. 1st up was Yeritasardakan Metro Station. Historically, during soviet times, when a city reached a population of 1 Million people, the government would install a series of metro stations. When Yerevan was close, it invited the department of transportation to survey the city and they planned traffic jams so that the city looked busier than it actually was. #yeritasardakan #yeritasardakanmetro #sovietera #sovietarchitecture #blackandwhitephotography #yerevan #aremina #publictransportation
