Oleg Atbashian is a writer and graphic artist from the former USSR. Born and raised in Ukraine, he grew up believing in Communism and at one time worked as a propaganda artist, creating visual agitprop for the local Party committee in a Siberian town. He became disillusioned with the corruption and the hypocrisy of the socialist system and emigrated to the United States in 1994. His writings present a view of America and the world through the prism of his Soviet experience. He is the creator of ThePeoplesCube.com, which Rush Limbaugh described on his show as “a Stalinist version of The Onion.” His essays and satires have been translated into many languages and his graphics reproduced in various publications around the world.
