MTO’s “Don Vs Kim” 2017 Dummies Contest Finals

Inspired (or better annoyed), by the recent irrational and superficial media fight between Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump, MTO recently created 2 paintings that are accompanied with an exclusive video. The works are portraying 2 leaders as bodybuilders striking their most impressive poses in a competition, and are continuation of French artist’s ongoing socio-political commentary.

Each acrylic painting is measuring 30x40cm and is a critique of their egocentric characters and need to demonstrate their worthiness, power, etc. Wearing shorts with national flags, they are representing the people of both countries, while making themselves look like a parody of the person they are supposed to be. This is further accented with a video that compiles different moments in which both Jong-un and Trump are acting more as attention-hungry narcissists and less as leaders chosen by their people.  And the lyrics of the song further add to the whole idea saying “Le temps ne fait rien à l´affaire Quand on est con, on est con / Time doesn’t make a difference, When you’re a cunt, you’re a cunt”.
