Fantastic work from Saint Hoax; War Drags You Out is a photo series which takes the world’s most controversial leaders, past and present, and transforms them into drag queens. Why you ask, well Hoax realized the recipe for a great drag queen – fierce persona, defining outfits, and “one hell of a PR team” – was eerily similar to the makings of a powerful political figure. So now Hoax (a self-described POPlitical artist) focuses much of his work on “rewriting history through visual lies.”
“Just like drag queens, political leaders are expected to entertain, perform and occasionally lip-sync a public speech.”
