Published 3 April 2013
Russian media outlets have been <strong><a href="http://www.rferl.org/content/p183-reported-dead-russian-street-artist/24947001.html" target="_blank">reporting the death</a></strong> of notorious guerrilla artist P183, who was in his late 20s. Dubbed the "Russian Banksy" by Western media, in reference to the infamous British street artist, P183's playful and often politically subversive graffiti had regularly appeared at various places around Moscow for more than a decade. Like much of his life, P183's reported death is still shrouded in mystery and there are very few details surrounding the circumstances of his apparent demise. (10 PHOTOS)
