Konstantin Viktorovich Altunin (Russian: Константин Викторович Алтунин, born December 21, 1967) is a Russian painter from Arkhangelsk, Russia.[1] 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.[2][3][4] He has been exhibiting paintings since 2000.

Other controversial paintings by Altunin[edit]

On another painting Altunin depicted the politician Vitaly Milonov against a rainbow background. The rainbow is the symbol of the LGBT community.[5] He also produced a painting with Putin wearing women’s underwear and painted a sculpted head of Lenin with dripping rainbow colors.
