Konstantin Viktorovich Altunin (Russian: Константин Викторович Алтунин, born December 21, 1967) is a Russian painter from Arkhangelsk, Russia. He left Russia following a controversy after a painting of Putin and Dmitry Medvedev in women’s underwear had been seized by St. Petersburg authorities. He has been exhibiting paintings since 2000.
Other controversial paintings by Altunin
On another painting Altunin depicted the politician Vitaly Milonov against a rainbow background. The rainbow is the symbol of the LGBT community. He also produced a painting with Putin wearing women’s underwear and painted a sculpted head of Lenin with dripping rainbow colors.
