Mark Aleksandrovich Abramov (1913 - 1994) was a Soviet and Ukrainian artist. Born in Kharkov, Ukraine, Abramov went to Moscow to study engineering and studied at the Moscow Civil Engineering Institute from 1931 until 1936. Using the pseudonym Moa, Abramov and his brother Oleg submitted cartoons and caricatures to satirical newspapers and magazines during the 1930s. This led to a career as a satirical artist and his caricatures appeared in Pravda and Izvestiya, along with other leading newspapers, regularly. His work was also published in Krokodil and Ogonyok, two popular magazines. Abramov also enjoyed a successful career as a poster artist, with fifteen released during World War II between October 1941 and April 1945. He continued designing posters after the war, and was awarded the title Honored Worker of Arts of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic in 1964.
