UK artist Andy Dunlop has been doing this series of brilliant paintings of politicians with clown paint on them. Darkly funny but also terrifying they bring out the personality of the world leaders drawn through the clown paint quite brilliantly.

I’ve been working on a series of clown paintings over the last couple of years inspired by those old Chuck Oberstein paintings. I kind of avoided doing Trump cause he does such a good job of making himself look like a clown on a daily basis that it felt redundant, but he was always the elephant in the room when I was working on the other paintings so eventually, I gave in to the urge. It wasn’t an easy one to do as it’s impossible to paint his face without frowning, I had a headache every night for a week painting it.
