Voina is a Russian art collective that engages in street action art. It is a movement in contemporary art that is relatively new to Russia despite being widespread in the West and regarded by critics as one of the most valuable contemporary art movements.
The group was created on 23rd February, 2007 by philosophy students at Lomonosov Moscow State University with the aim of developing monumental patriotic street art in Russia. The group's idol was, and forever will be, the great Russian artist Dmitri Prigov. Voina currently counts over 200 members who perform actions in its name, sometimes without informing the rest of the group.
