McLenin's

"In Russia, it is still not allowed to make fun of 'the native,'" says Kosolapov. "It's all right to say that Lenin is a criminal and a murderer, but you can't laugh at him and attach a mouse head. He may be bad, but he is ours."

One can say that Alexander Kosolapov the artist did not create a new movement in art and did not spawn students or imitators. He worked within the framework of the Sots-Art movement, which was created and formulated by others (although with his participation). Nevertheless, having worked in this vein for over 40 years, he has managed to bring the Sots-Art formulas to utmost laconism. His works have become instantly recognizable trademarks, and Kosolapov himself has become a brand.
