Leonid Baranov is a contemporary Russian folk artist. I am sorry that I was unable to find a photograph, or any other information aside from the scant details pasted below. Nevertheless, I think that you would agree that his work is comparable to that of Grandma Moses, which means that it is very good, indeed.
Mr Baranov should not be confused with a prominent contemporary Russian sculptor of the same name, Leonid Baranov (1943-). Why, I may showcase the second Mr Baranov’s art next week as he is one of the best sculptors in modern Russia. In addition, the commander of the Baikonur cosmodrome is also named Leonid Baranov (the original Mr Baranov must have gotten around quite a bit, I would say!)!
“Leonid Baranov is an artist from the city of Yekaterinburg who [depicts] modern life in the Russian village. The heroes of his works look like real people from the Russian countryside. He never became famous or rich, and he prefers to drink a lot of vodka, as [he is] a real Russian, and doesn’t care much about missing fame. Still, I find something attractive in his pictures”.
