10 cardboard profiles based on a portrait I made for Limited 1.
The person I made the portrait about precisely plans his surreal artwork and is interested in politics.
I made the portrait to resemble a painting from M.C. Escher, since his artworks also are very surreal and yet extremely constructed.
The political aspect came from the fact that it was the end of Barack Obamas administration at the white house. It also meant the end of his very difficult relationship with Vladimir Putin.
These portraits show the depicted politicians and their most prominent opponents as shapes.
It goes: Angela Merkel and Gerhard Schröder;
Angela Merkel and Franz-Walter Steinmeier;
Angela Merkel and Peer Steinbrück;
Angela Merkel and Martin Schulz;
Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin (x2);
Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama (x2)
and Donald J. Trump and Kim Jong Un (x2).
