Volandeput & His Deadly Gallows

A dark satirical comic strip series for 18+
Oleg Tischenkov, aka Olegti, is a Canada-based Russian illustrator whose colourful work is normally full of optimism and hope. But when Russia invaded Ukraine on the 24th of February the nature of his art changed.

“I have been drawing comic strips for as long as I can remember, but they have always been very different. From the beginning of the war, my pictures have become like this – very unforgiving and angry. I am an artist, and my images are the best way I can show my anti-war and anti-Putin position. This is the only thing I can do. To be precise, this is what I cannot help doing.”

Olegti’s series Volandeput & His Deadly Gallows is exclusively translated into English for #TheVoiceOfRussia.
