„Kim Jong-un | Colored Dictator 8“

from the gallery of Peter Potamus

This is a new Kim Jong-un Colored Dictator series, inspired by the Andy Warhol 1972 Mao Series.

In the aftermath of President Richard Nixon's 1972 visit to China, and its subsequent buzz in the press, Warhol created a series of prints around the now immortalized image of the Chinese leader, Mao Zedong, inspired by a parallel between Communist propaganda and American media. These brightly colored portraits of Mao, transformed Mao into a worldwide pop icon.

Kim Jong-un; born 8 January 1983;is the supreme leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea). He is the son of Kim Jong-il (1941–2011) and the grandson of Kim Il-sung (1912–1994).
