Yevgeny Yufit, an artist, film director and the founder of necrorealism, died on 13 December at the age of 55.
Yevgeny Yufit was born in Leningrad in 1961. In the early 1980s, he became the founder of one of the important movements in Leningrad’s unofficial art — necrorealism. It was also then that he established an underground film studio “Mzhalalafilm”, which released such films as “Werewolf” “Orderlies” (1984), “Woodcutter” (1985), “Spring” (1987), “Fortitude” (1988), and “Suicide Monsters” (1988). Necrorealist artists also worked in painting, photography and graphic art.
