Within the past year, I have come across several Soviet Armenian political posters online. They seem unique and possess a sort of style all their own, reflecting the distinct culture and atmosphere of Armenia and the region in agitprop art. These are fascinating pieces of history that shed light on life inside the Soviet Armenian republic.
Below are some examples. These posters used to be widespread in Armenia, even into the early years of independence in the 1990s. However, as of September 2013, I have been unable to locate any of them. Still, given these images, I’m certain that some still exist in Armenia today.
If you have any information on these posters (e.g., the artist(s) behind them, etc.), then please don’t hesitate to let us know via our comment form below!
