The Political Leaders series by New York and Toronto-based artist Michael Caines shows a humorous portrayal of recent-day statesmen. For the series of paintings, Michael Caines represented the likeness of Richard Nixon, Karl Rove and Kim Jong Il.
The paintings in the series do not have a clear political message but simply depict the political figures in asinine and unrealistic contexts. For Richard Nixon, Michael Caines paints the former president in circus attire and as the master of some domesticated animals; Karl Rove is depicted wearing a dress and standing in a clearing in the forest with his arm around a deer.
The political figures series by Michael Caines is a humorous look at powerful world figures in embarrassing contexts.
