Petr Sadecky : "The great illusionist"


Last week end, I tried to explain to friends, who was the artist behind Octobriana, and that was not an easy task. Because his creator did a very good job to mix fiction and reality.

Actually I've been reading many articles, and can't really figure the whole plot.

Anyway, in a nutshell Petr Sadecky (photo on the left) who was a student in Prague, was also a member of a secret Russian group (PPP?) who collectively create Octobriana as the "Eternal Spirit of the October Revolution" - then after Petr escaped (with material from that collective work) to West Germany and then England, he published a comic book "Octobriana and the Russian Underground", that became an inspiration for many artists.

Which part is true, I don't know - but many articles also point the fact that the art used in the comic, wasn't Petr's work - but was done by another czech artist (Bohumil Konecny)...
