As an object, an automobile embodies many desires:
freedom, adventure, status, mobility…
In the beginning of the 20th century, these desires were manifest in many hearts without geographic and political borders.
Even the automobile and the Soviet system made an odd couple, the desire for car ownership gave Soviet automobiles a life of their own:
Volgas, Ladas, Moskviches, Zhigulis…
Nowadays, these old, tired cars born of the Soviet system are living their second life under Capitalist systems.
For their owners, they are more than just metal, glass, and plastic!
The “Soviet’s Fingerprints” project paints the portrait of Soviet automobiles in their second life, with themes of humor, disappointment, and overloaded dreams of profit ….
The “Soviet’s Fingerprints” project includes woodcut prints, serigraphy works, and fine art prints.
