One look at the Trainband demo art and I was asked, “You’re really into the Constuctivist thing aren’t you?” Indeed. I was then given a couple names to search the depths of Wikipedia for.

While searching for particular artists on Wikipedia or Google turned up plenty of great resources and artwork, it’s interesting my favorite resource for online catalogs of constructivist/Soviet propaganda art isn’t a bibliographical reference or online art gallery/archive. Rather, it’s a photo sharing service. Yeah, more Flickr love and again for good reason.

Of all the user generated content sites, Flickr feels like it has the most professional content. Sure there are lots of random party photos and other quick point and shoots, but those never filter to the top. It’s the good stuff that gets favorited. It seems like beyond good photos, Flickr is becoming a repository for various collections painstakingly organized and uploaded by its users. Museum of Telecommunications. 19thc Shipping Posters. Pelican Paperbacks. Advertising. Matchbox labels. Definitely recommend browsing up a level on all of those sets to see more from the user.

Back to poster art/Constructivism:

Isn’t this site awesome when the link color is set so close to the text color? There are thirteen links in this post. Can you find them?

    i didn’t know that that was the kind of art that you liked!!! just wait until you go back to medford, i think that you will dig the lithos/ prints that are hanging in what used to be Louie’s Pub but is now The Blue Angel. their pretty similar, and rad.

    Maybe I should go back just for the art then. Or not. But yeah, now you know that sort of thing makes me smile.
