Passepartout is all about documentaries and visual stuff I find worth seeing.

Soviet Cats: Some Irony and Lots of Surprising Kitsch

I was doing some research for a story, and accidentally found this series of soviet cats illustrations. I didn’t find the author or the idea behind them – if anyone know who he or she is, please get in touch – but the kitsch of it is captivating, so take a look.

They’re all different sizes, illustrating typical Russian characters in a propaganda style. I sense some irony in them, and that’s partly why I find them memorable. The kitsch is the other part.
