Art meets espionage as artist Lee Owens brings down the Kremlin’s walls under an onslaught of graffiti, political cartoons and covert public art attacks.
Talented artist and cynic Lee Owens has a ‘Pet Project,’ a blog, where he anonymously posts cartoons critical of the Russian president. His political satire is so popular and scathing, the country’s supreme leader orders the GRU, Russia’s military intelligence, to find the cartoonist and silence the humor. While the artist is being hunted in America, he and a small group of operatives, head for Russia to raise a little creative havoc and start a revolution.
(Attack Examples: A 45-foot-tall blimp of the federation’s president is floated down the middle of the Neva River in St. Petersburg. Plastic mannequins wearing tutus, modeled after Russia’s supreme leader are glued to the pillars in front of the Bolshoi Theatre. The ‘President’s Palace north of Sochi is spray painted black, windows, garden, and all, (a homage to Christo).
The pen is mightier than the sword. A creative mind is a dangerous thing. Some more dangerous than others. The lesson: it’s best not to meddle with another country’s Democracy.
