Great Dashab 2010-02-27 12:08

Hello Reed,
I agree with you about the presence of that person in your frame - he is an essential component. The light is managed perfectly and the composition and framing are excellent.
And I very much enjoyed reading your note, especially about how you "almost became a member" :-)
But it is the mural that really amazes me: were it in Central Europe, it would be considered "socialist realism", and most likely deemed obsolete (and perhaps even painted over by now). This is another example showing that the art that we were accustomed to viwing as "communist" was really the "art of the era", no matter the side of the iron curtain.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice weekend!

I hadn't thought of that "art of the era", but you are correct - it is very much like the propaganda posters of the 1950's through the 1970's!

Thanks for pointing that out!
