Geliy Korzhev was a highly influential, Russian painter who produced a large body of work between the 1930s and 1990s. Though much of his work is noteworthy, Korzhev's "Mutants" series is most arresting.
"Mutants" was created during the 1980s and 90s. Some claim the series was created in retaliation against capitalism after the fall of the Soviet Union. Others claim is was purely an experiment in surrealist themes per a request from his niece.
Who knows? Perhaps it was a mix of both.
Regardless of what sparked the series, Korzhev's "Mutants" have continued to fascinate international audiences for decades. The series draws on ancient themes of mythology and even Biblical characters. And upon closer inspection, viewers can spot well-known characters such as Don Quixote, Judas the traitor, and traditional Renaissance influences.
