Soviet Nonconformist Art - In Russia, a samovar represents warmth, home, family, and contentment. When the word is used in a derogatory slang towards you, it means you’re stupid or an imbecile.

The term Soviet Nonconformist Art refers to art produced in the former Soviet Union from 1953 to 1986 outside of the rubric of Socialist Realism. Other terms used to refer to this phenomenon are "unofficial art" or "underground art."
