The 34-year-old artist who has "crucified" Gagarin has died in the train


The sidewalk artist Alexander Zhunev has died in the train going from Moscow to Perm. About it in Facebook on Friday, August 10, the spouse Anna Zhuneva has reported it. "He has died at night in the train, going from Moscow home, to Perm. I have fallen asleep and I haven't woken up any more. The heart knocking only 34 years has stopped. Sasha belonged not only and not just to family; his head has always been stuffed by the ideas directed out of limits of quiet private life. He dreamed to change the world, it is brighter and more interesting to do it" — Zhuneva has told. She didn't call an exact cause of death of the spouse. The woman has noted that farewell to the artist will take place on August 11 in Perm. "If you feel a response to our loss, you can come. Or just to lay flowers and to light candles near his works in the city" — she has added. Photo: Maxim Kimerling / Kommersant Zhunev has gained popularity thanks to scandalous graffiti of 2015, nicknamed the press "the crucified Gagarin". The artist has represented the Soviet astronaut crucified on a cross on one of buildings in the center of Perm between the former rocket school and a cathedral on the night of April 12. That year Day of astronautics has coincided with Easter. Zhunev has said that he has counted it symbolical as the science and religion long time resisted each other. The prosecutor's office was going to open criminal case on Zhunev, however experts haven't found corpus delicti under the article "Vandalism". The artist was sentenced to a penalty of 1000 rubles.
