Vladislav Mamyshev-Monroe, one of Russia’s most significant performance artists, died on Saturday 16 March after drowning in a hotel swimming pool in Bali, where he had lived since 2007. His unexpected death shocked Russia’s artistic community, underscoring his place as a key figure in the Russian art world and his charismatic personality. The 43-year-old, also known as Vlad Monroe, was best known for his impersonations of prominent figures from Hitler, the Pope and Putin to Marilyn Monroe, after whom he was affectionately nicknamed.
