About the author
Erik Bulatov was born in 1933.

Education: Graduated from the Surikov's Moscow State Academic Art Institute in 1958.

Art practice: Bulatov's idiosyncratic creative method is characterized by the collision of text from Soviet posters with a figurative (most often landscape) component. As a result, the artist manages to illustrate the absurdity of reality in an extremely accessible way, oversaturated with the symbols of Soviet propaganda.

Bulatov is one of the few Russian artists, the price of whose works are record high at international auctions. At the Phillips auction, the work "Glory to the CPSU" was sold for about $ 1.2 million.
Prizes: Order of Arts and Letters (France, 2015)
Order of Friendship (Russia, October 28, 2014) - for his great contribution to strengthening friendship and cooperation with the Russian Federation, preserving and popularizing the Russian language and culture abroad
Innovation - "For a creative contribution to the development of contemporary art" (Russia, 2013)
Prize in the "Power" section in Gwangju Biennale (South Korea, 1997)

The artist had more than 15 personal exhibitions, including ones at the State Tretyakov Gallery, the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, the Moscow Manege, the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London, the Museum of Fine Arts in Zurich, the National Museum of Monaco, as well as in the USA, France, Norway, Germany, the Netherlands and other countries.
