In 1918 Lebedev was appointed professor at Petrograd State Free Art Workshops. In the same year he designed the play The Spring in the artistic cabaret theatre Comedians’ Halt (“Prival Komediantov”). Lebedev took part in the exhibition of the modern painting and drawing in Petrograd. In early 1920s he began to work on political posters, he became one of the organizers of Petrograd Windows of ROSTA (the Russian Telegraph Agency).  In 1923 Lebedev drew costume and scene designs to the staging of the play Jokes Dinner by S.
