Russian Art, despite a strong sense of tradition, continues to produce compelling styles that fascinate the rest of the world. Many Westerners might be familiar with the now kitschy aesthetics of the Soviet-Era but today’s Russia is a center of contemporary style. Take for instance these examples of Modern Russian wall calendar design.

These calendars show a distinct sense of humor that may not translate directly in other cultures. While the Russian mindset is different from what many Westerners are used to, these prints not only tell dates-they also reveal much about that country. Hopefully, these wall calendar design samples will inspire you to create your own for the upcoming year!
