Mr. Dictator Head

12 Jan

Mr. dicator head’ by melbourne-based artist Stephen Ives is a series of sculptures that depicts various dictator figures as the popular children’s toy, mr. potato head. characterized by multiple removable parts, the collection includes well-known political characters such as stalin, saddam hussein, and kim jong il. achieving striking resemblance through eyebrows, hair formation, and, in some cases, the character-defining mustache, the plastic figurines juxtapose the dictators with an accessible and endearing model form.
