Lev Kropivnitsky / Лев Евгеньевич Кропивницкий (1922-1994)
Russian nonconformist artists, poet, art critic. Since the end of 1950s, he worked in arts and crafts Combine. He served as a book designer and art critic (in the "Decorative Arts" magazine). But popularity recived primarily as a "nonoficial-artist". In the end of 1950s – begin of 1960s, wrote a lot of pointless things, later mostly adhered to "mythological" expressionism and surrealism (Pink Bull, 1965, Herb, 1971). Fruitfully worked in the etching technique.
