The Tanka Toys project was launched in 2012 by Russian artist Tanya Nelmina, who lives and works in Vladivostok, the city in the Russian Far East, near the borders with China and North Korea. 

Tanka Toys is a series of “Mocking toys” - fun and cute characters with a satirical spirit inspired by the everyday news, pop culture and Internet memes. These small pieces of art are made to reveal the irony and, sometimes, the absurdity of Big Politics. 

And while politicians play their Game of Thrones and build their House of Cards, Tanka Toys sends another message to the world: Make Laugh, Not War.
