This style of painting fromed in early 19th century at the lower river Mezen region, far North of European Russia. It uses ancient simple, often geometrical elements and only three colors: red, black on white or yellow background.

The symbols used could be traced both to ancient Slavic ones

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and ones used by Finno-Ugric peoples (e.g. Komi geometrical patterns). Sadly enogh, the Wikipedia article only lists Slavic roots of this folk art painting style.
