The main character of the post-revolutionary posters was a man who understood work as creativity. Thousands of posters were dedicated to Communist
subbotniks, shock workers’ movement, socialist competition. It is interesting, that even artists, who were far from politics, paid tribute to this theme.
The author of the poster “All-Russian subbotnik – the way to the revival of water transport” Kuzma Petrov-Vodkin was inspired by social initiatives of the post-revolutionary time to create posters, that became a hymn to the grand scale and frantic pace of industrial transformation.
