Russia Protests
1: Patience by Art Group “Yav”
22 Jan 2021, St Petersburg
The art collective came up with this street art back in May 2020. The tension in Russian politics was apparent for the past few years, but the artists chose to wait until people’s patience came to a point of no return. This work appeared on the central streets of St Petersburg as a prelude to what was coming the next day: the biggest political protest in Russian contemporary history.
