Take a look-see

I just discovered this fella by the name of Anatoly Fomenko. He's a a Russian mathematician who works on topology and is pretty well known in his field. In recent years he's started debating history and has even written a series of pseudoscience books about how our currently accepted version of modern history is all a sham...

Well, I discovered his video about the books on Youtube, then was directed to his page on wikipedia via the comments about his crackpot books, read the wiki entry and found out he's an artist, and then went to his art page. His drawings and paintings are very stark, minimalist, and bleak... but damn they are fascinating.
