Works of Dmitri Vrubel
The graffiti painting My God, Help Me to Survive This Deadly Love by Vrubel, which features the kissing communist leaders Leonid Brezhnev and Erich Honecker, is his most well-known creation. It was painted on the Berlin Wall.
It was based on an image taken by photographer Regis Bossu in 1979, during a celebration of the 30th anniversary of the GDR, showing a socialist brotherly kiss between leaders Leonid Brezhnev and Erich Honecker.
The painting was taken down by the government in 2009 as part of a cleaning exercise so that Vrubel could repaint it.
He and his wife, Viktoria Timofeyeva, produced “The 12 moods of Putin,” a large-format calendar in 2001 that featured images of the Russian leader Vladimir Putin. The calendar, which featured various depictions of Putin on each page, became unexpected popularity with the people of Moscow.
