Dmitri Stachijewitsch Orlow (Russian Дмитрий Стахиевич Орлов; 1883-1946) was a Russian-Soviet graphic artist. He used the pseudonym Д. Моор / D. Moor.
D. Moor was one of the founders of the Soviet political poster. In 1920, during the civil war, he created the progaganda posters “Have you signed up as a volunteer?”, “Wrangel is still alive, beat him to death without mercy” and “The red gift for the white Pan”. Sharply delimited light reflections and an expressive drawing of the contours were characteristic of his work.
During the Second World War, Moor created a number of posters and headed an artist brigade at the Moscow Art School.
