If you order something from our online shop today, we thank you! We're a small, entirely artist-owned and operated shop. As you might imagine, we're running just a little slower than usual, so you might experience a slight delay on your order and on the USPS transit time once we ship, but don't worry: we're on it!
This is a portrait of Stepan Petrichenko, one of the organizers of the Kronstadt sailors’ rebellion against the Bolsheviks in 1921. The image was taken from a photo of him after he had fled to Finland, following the fall of Kronstadt’s forces to the Red Army. The Kronstadt experiment and their struggle for freedom are inspiring, and their defeat is incredibly tragic. Petrichenko was no saint and I don’t wish to deify him, but there is something incredibly haunting and defiant in that photo of him (found in the back of Paul Avrich’s The Russian Anarchists).
Many artists, including many of us at Justseeds, are facing acute economic consequences as a result of the COVID19 pandemic:
cancelled exhibitions, lost opportunities, dwindling sales. If you were thinking about supporting your friendly neighborhood radical artists’ cooperative by picking up a print, poster or book from our shop, now would be a great time, and much appreciated!
