About

Winged Doom/The Omsk Bird is a series of drawings, comics and image macros, originated in 2009 on Russian imageboards, based on a central character of “Winged Doom”, a drawing by Heiko Muller. The character is often associated with the city of Omsk, and everything psychedelic, surreal and drug-induced.

Origin

This meme is from 2009. It started as a phrase “Омич полуёбок, скажи ты наркоман? я просто тоже где то там живу, могли бы вместе уёбывать наркотики.” (“Hey, half-fucker guy from Omsk, tell me, are you a junkie? Because I live here somewhere too, we could shoot drugs together.”) The phrase itself was a forced meme on 0chan.ru/b, but the word Омич (guy from Omsk) quickly became an euphemism for junkie. Then the place itself became associated with everything drug-induced or surreal. Various macros started to appear with “Welcome to Omsk” written on top of some surreal pictures like in “Picture unrelated”, and one of them featured the painting “Winged doom” by Heiko Müller. The recognizable central figure was dubbed “Omsk bird” and started to appear in fan-art. Heiko Müller became aware of the trend, initially misinterpreting it as if Omsk citizens have chosen it as a city mascot, but at some point he even participated in one of the winged doom threads. It is a curious trivia that the final version of stylized winged doom icon that is used in memegenerator was made by Heiko himself (he changed eye color from red to white).

it’s a russian meme, very popular in their chans, the bird is an allegory of drugs and the persistent decadence of the city of Omsk in Siberia, full of drug-addicts and lost people. The Omsk bird is taken from a tenebrist creation of web-artist Heiko Müller
