  • Hahaha I am cracking up at these and I don’t know why.

  • Spoony

    Somehow this reminds me of playing GTA, awesome ;p

  • Loving liz.
    The first one is def the strongest one.

  • Niko

    Haha, Patrick, it gets even funnier just thinking about the sort of mind or upbringing that caused her to be so completely fixated on the act of jumping vans or whatever, you know, top notch, to meet a woman facinated by jumping a vans, in a king of the hill backwoods evil kenivel white family on welfare sort of fashion, I love it, I want to meet this chick and rock out to van halen with her, hehe.

    • Bolla

      Dude are you on something?

  • Excellent ! I don’t really “understand” the first one, but it’s ok :p

  • Ally

    While there is a simplicity to the application of the work, I really enjoy the absurdity in the subjects and situations Brown paints. What I find really interesting is that the subjects appear very loud and spontaneous, however the paintings themselves feel quiet and calm. I find this mixture of subdued vs. spontaneous action very compelling! Thanks for the images!

  • I really like the top painting with the UFO. There is clearly a hidden meaning to the image but I can’t fathom what it is…

Are the Similarities Between Trump and Hitler TIME Covers Purely Coincidental?

trump-hitler-time-cover0

TIME Magazine has just announced their “Person of the Year” is Donald Trump. Twitter users were quick to point out the striking similarities between this cover, shot by photographer Nadav Kander, and the Adolf Hitler cover from April 1941. Hitler was also named “Person of the Year” in 1938.

In both images the subjects are seated in chairs, but as Fader points out, notice the ominous shadow on the wall, and the way the colour of the backdrop complements the suit. For reference you can look through the past “Person of the Year” covers here.

Many are also suggesting that the “M” in TIME gives Donald Trump the appearance of having devil horns. Are people reading too much into this or were these intentional decisions? Have a look at both cover images below.
