“Just Leaders”: a Commentary on Politics by Gunduz Agayev

Joseph Stalin (Soviet Union)

Politicians have never been less popular than nowadays. We are in the middle of a hard situation and there’s no better way to express one’s feelings about politics, by expressing through art. So does Gunduz Agayev, who is presenting an unknown side of the world’s biggest leaders, in his illustration series “Just Leaders”. From Napoleon to Muamar Haddafi, the artists are illustrated as skeletons, decomposing due to the decay they have caused. Their garments though, still remain shiny, because that’s what makes them leaders: their attire.

*Interesting info: Vladimir Putin is presented as the President of Putinstan by the artist.
