These digitally painted portraits and caricatures give controversial politicians an animal face, exaggerating or distorting their individual characteristics. The result is a sequence of fantastic hybrid creatures. The portraits are implemented in an accurate manner reminiscent of the style of the old masters and painted with dramatic lighting, which reinforces their grotesque effect. All in all, the illustrations make a clear, political statement and encourage the viewer to adopt a position as well.
