Questioning nonsense as Lola makes portraits with glue and paper

Can art be a therapeutic endeavour collectors purchase for status while bored people pursue to avoid going insane? Can politicians be caricatures of society, and can leadership be a social construct idealized by the brain of an ape? Is there such a thing as privilege…or is it a 20 year-old English boy masturbating in-front of his 13-in macbook?

Currently based in Ireland, Lola Dupré made these illustrations by putting together pieces of various pictures of the actual portraits. Indeed, her illustrations are collages she completed by using paper, scissors, and passion…or a lot of time to meditate while creating.

Not bad.

Mr. Bizamas likes shading his drawings with Bic pens. The result? Judge by yourself.

He is from Chile and a Deviant Art user since 2009; his hobby, aside from making wooden pulley bows, is photo-reference-drawing. The subject of his work: popular film and TV icons… but he has drawings of political leaders and painters, too.

Here are a few of his images, which I’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy.
