A flurry of street art critical of President Obama hit the area around Sunday's Academy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles, according to a post with 32 accompanying photos on Imgur.

The posters show an Oscar statue apparently with head of Vladimir Lenin and the caption "OCZARS" — the "O" is embellished with the well-known Obama election graphic.

Seems the unidentified artist in question is having fun mixing symbolism that's been used by both Russia — which has been in the news a good bit lately — and the Obama administration, which has a bit of history with special advisers or "czars" (e.g., "drug czar").

Another photo depicts a giant Lenin head, with a few posters in the background:

No reports as yet regarding what has happened, if anything, to the street art.

For the rest of the photos, head to Imgur.
