Spectacular fan art of the world’s dictators

Why place an oil painting on the wall when you can get your hands on fan art? Alessandria Masi compiled these somewhat awful, somewhat incredible dictator artworks, which can be bought for as little as $115. How about a portrait of Bashar al-Assad on the hallway wall? Or ‘Al Putino’ in the den? My personal favourite has to be Kim Jong-un , the ‘Supreme Leader’ of North Korea, riding a ‘winged dolphin into a purple sky’. It’s really quite special.
