Russian Prime Minister and President-elect Vladimir Putin has carefully cultivated his macho image in recent years. But a new art exhibit in St. Petersburg by painter Aleksei Sergienko shows the leader in a gentler light: petting a dog, holding a child, or riding a bicycle. Whether the show, titled “The Kindest Man,” is meant seriously or as a satire of Putin’s image-making is left up to the viewer. (Video by Aleksander Gorelik for RFE/RL)

Very interesting paintings. Reminds me of North Korean pop art.
