18 paintings by the artist about Soviet childhood, which touch you with precise details and subtle humor (19 photos)
Zoya Cherkasskaya is an Israeli artist who lived her first 15 years in the USSR. She is so saturated with the surroundings of the Soviet era that she still accurately transfers all its signs onto the canvas. She often approaches this with irony.
Her paintings on the theme of childhood are the most touching and accurate (see pictures of school everyday life below). Some adults seem to be noticed by a child's gaze, surreptitiously, like a picture of a woman talking on the phone.
Zoya’s paintings captivate with her ability to subtly feel and convey the atmosphere of the past even to those who did not experience it.
