Russian wonder duo Vladimir Dubossarsky & Alexsander Vinogradov paint social realism for The People: heroicism that the public truly demands. Their paintings range from post-Cold War romance dioramas starring world political leaders and action film heroes, demented renderings of Western icons i.e. Mickey Mouse & Barbie, and fashion glamorous depictions of New Russian (Mafioso) lifestyle. Their previous show at Vilma Gold hosted a 6m Painting For London, a Baroque flattery of Queen Elizabeth as a Diana-like fairy princess picnicking with a gangly mob of her proletariat, a bestiary of wild animals, and a choir of chubby putti. This current exhibition offers an array of more traditionally romantic scenes: the carnal brutality of an idealised wilderness, landscapes and underwater scenes populated by heroin-chic sex models, Jurassic lizards, and mythological adventure.
