Trump and Putin by kelly heaton

With the news blowing up about election interference, I can't resist reposting these paintings from last year: "Donald Trump (The Big Hack)" and "Vladimir Putin (The Operational Amplifier)." Politics, technology, gobbledygook, obfuscation, and sneakiness. Oil on canvas, 2017
