St. Petersburg-based artist, Irina Romanovskaya, has been causing a stir in her Mother Russia by painting portraits of political leaders, including Vladimir Putin, with her boob.
Romanovskaya has noted that “paintings painted with breasts sell well and for a lot.”
Has late capitalism come to Russia?

The artist, quoted in a Russian article posted to her LiveJournal, translated [in amusing broken-English] via Google Translate:
In this unusual technique I decided to draw a well-known politician. Zhirinovsky bright politician, how could I not draw him ... for a portrait Vladimir Zhirinovsky, I chose the color purple, my favorite. I heartily Vladimir Zhirinovsky! Artist Irina Romanov painted a portrait of Vladimir Zhirinovsky [with her] breast. Especially since breast painting difficult to draw, the process is very time consuming and not fast any inaccuracy can lead to what is necessary to re-start all over. For the portrait used only breast. In this technique, I have in front of strangers do not draw. Irina Romanov technique will update continuously , working hard and getting the hang of drawing [with] breasts and body. Foreign collectors often buy my works, paintings painted [with] breasts [sell] well and expensively sold. [Her] works are in private collections in Russia and abroad.

In the video below, she demonstrates the process… which is remarkably totally safe for work.
There’s a “Left boobs painted by left boob” joke someone could make here, but I think serious breast art aficionados such as ourselves are above all that, aren’t we?
