Political leaders: Dressed for war drags

In a political critique with a cutting comical tone, artist saint hoax has created a series of short animated gifs, which transform international political leaders into elaborately dressed-up drag queens.

From Russia’s vladamir putin to america’s former president george bush, the government chiefs are reworked into female forms, wearing ornate jewels and extravagant hairdos. struck by the richness of the glamor oriented culture, saint hoax subsequently bridged a connection to the bureaucratic sphere.

It got me thinking that behind every ‘great’ man, there’s a queen.’ saint hoax describes the commentary the collection of moving images makes.

He resumed: ‘like drag queens, political/religious leaders are expected to entertain, perform and occasionally lip-sync a public speech. but unlike drag queens, the fame hungry leaders don’t know when to take their costumes off.’
