The Exquisite Propaganda Art of the Soviet Space Program

The propaganda art of the Soviet space program was absolutely spectacular science fiction art! As unpopular as the Russians are today, this is nothing new. They’ve long played the villain on the world stage. International politics and the horrific invasion of Ukraine aside, looking at this work purely through an artistic lens, the propaganda space art of the former Soviet Union was positively glorious — and during this era, Ukraine was part of the Soviet Union. There are many excellent articles available online about this subject and it makes for very interesting reading. I have provided several images here, but this is quite literally just the tip of the iceberg! I invite you to explore this art further. You’ll find yourself thoroughly immersed in it for many hours.
