Passepartout is all about documentaries and visual stuff I find worth seeing.

The creepy-kitsch update: dictators and their fluffy toys

It seems to me that Photoshop can create the most surprising and disturbing kitsch images. And I have already confessed my love for kitsch in this post about Zarathustra the obese cat, appearing in some very famous paintings. Now Chinese artist Chunlong Sun blew my mind this morning with this very convincing images of dictators and their toys. They’re terrible and at the same time I simply can’t take my eyes off them. How does someone come up with this?

The last photo shows how Sun made these images, by initially photographing someone else with the toy. For more of his work, check his website here.
