Geliy Korzhev (or: The Sleep of Revolution Produces Monsters)

quote [ Not every Russian citizen was pleased to see the end of Communism in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics during the 1980s and 1990s. Some, like the artist Geliy Korzhev (1925-2012) thought the changes wrought by perestoika were a betrayal of all the lives sacrificed in order to bring true equality to the Russian people. ]

Interesting tovarish.
His monsters aesthetic falls somewhere between Richard Dadd and Deep Dream.

Isn't the translation 'The sleep of reason produces monsters"?
