Presidential Portrait Mashups
Olivier Ratsi's Political Depictions Mix Up Past American Leaders

Olivier Ratsi’s presidential mash up portraits intertwine the faces of Harry Truman, Barack Obama, Teddy Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy. Pieces taken from the faces of the male leaders come together in an amusing manner in these black and white collages.

Those who are privy to Ratsi’s artwork are instantly prompted to evaluate who it is they may be looking at. Splices of teeth, eyes, mustaches and chins are often enough to signify iconic leaders, indicating the sheer fame of the American figures.

Titled ‘Once Upon a Time the Presidents,’ the collection examines the aesthetics of the heads of state as opposed to their political ideals. The project resonates with the current presidential election as it unfolds, offering some comic relief in a diplomatic climate that is now full of debate and tribulation.
