Just came across the work of Syrian artist, satirist and sociopolitical activist Saint Hoax who creates striking commentaries on various social dysfunctions through subverting well recognized cultural symbols and icons. I particularly loved her/his Make America Misogynistic Again campaign, in which they paired Trump quotes with old advertisement images. Of the campaign, Saint Hoax writes:

“I removed the original headlines from these misogynistic advertisements and replaced them with quotes that Donald Trump said about women.
The headlines and visuals strongly complement each other, although there’s almost a 30-year gap between them.”

Saint Hoax “combines politics with popular culture to create PoPlitically incorrect statements. By manipulating images and icons, Hoax creates beautiful visual lies that tell an ugly truth.”

See some images from the campaign below and head over to their website for more.
