Russian political artist Nadezhda Khuzina was born December 12, 1982 in the city of Serpukhov, Russia. In 2001 she graduated from Moscow Region Pedagogical College, in 2008 – St. Petersburg Art and Industry Academy. Now Nadezhda Khuzina is living in San Diego, CA. Nadezhda Khuzina “Nadia” has devoted her last paintings to Winter Olympics in Sochi, featuring Russian president Putin in different roles. Vladimir Putin is able to perform any sport – skater and skier, hockey player and snowboarder, such James Bond of Olympics, able to cope with any task. The creative artist is inspired by the image of Russian president, a charismatic man Vladimir Putin
Living in the USA Russian political artist Nadezhda Khuzina admits “I have an admiration for Vladimir Putin, and feel he is doing his best every day to promote Russia’s interests with dignity and honor. Far from the hubristic stereotypes levied on him by ignorant Western media, Putin is a down to earth and likable personality. No, he can’t solve all of the problems in the world, but he can defend our motherland and raise her profile. I could not imagine a better leader for Russia at this time, I really couldn’t”.
I am fascinated by the tremendously lacking levels of world understanding found in Russia and the USA. I am almost certain that news directors in America scan The Onion RSS feed for which stories to write about Russia. With the odd YouTube dashcam video mixed in to pretend there is reality of course. And I equally sure that Russian media sources the entirety of American related news from FoxNews.com, and the 700 Club rants of Pat Robertson.
I love Russia, I love America, and most of all I love making art that makes people stop and think. Everything I do represents my unique outlook on the world. And my desire to share this with other people who might have seen things differently. I stop to look and listen to people as well.
Vladimir Putin means what he says when he says it. When disaster struck in the summer of 2010 he was there putting out the fires himself. That should always remind you, Don’t Play With Fire.
