Rinat Shingareev has proven to be very clever with her portrayals of famous dignitaries, pop culture idols and politicians. Her paintings have captured these icons as either how they wish to be seen or as they are actually viewed by the general public. Because of this, the images are highly controversial and it was with much moxie to create them.
Among the gallery includes Obama who is cast as the American hero, the Queen who is called out for her supremacy issues and obsession with decadence and Madonna who is hailed as a preacher of taboo.
I should also mention that these pictorials feature incredible artistic talent. Her impeccable detail and facial expressions help the antonymous fan art mean that much more. It will be interesting to see what other characterizations she has in store.
