TMT visited the opening of David Datuna's exhibition, "Eye to Eye", at Gallery Shchukin, where images of Russian icons and leaders like Vladimir Putin and Tsar Nicholas II were reinterpreted through optical lenses.

The American artist's works produced for this exhibition will go under the hammer at an auction, with proceeds going to the children's charity Naked Hearts Foundation.

The show continues till Nov. 10 near the Red Square, at Gallery Shchukin on Vetoshny Pereulok.
