These collages are about how the distinction between politics and stand-up comedy is blurring. Comedians are entering politics and doing very well at it (see below the examples from Ukraine, Italy, Guatemala and Iceland)
On the other hand, politicians are behaving more and more like stand-up comics. The most famous example is Trump; Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage.
So, the idea is that politics becoming more and more like a comedy show.

I am thrilled to announce our collaboration with Longines Masters for their fourth season.
It will be a highly intriguing and colourful event!
EEM presents a new Season of the Longines Masters Paris - Hong Kong - New York and invites fans from around the world to enjoy a remarkable lineup of sports, entertainment and unforgettable moments.
I designed new artworks with a pop interpretation full of vibrant colours! Hope you enjoy and like it!
🇫🇷 For me Paris is the city of literature and fashion. I got to pick blue as the main color because it represents the intellectuality and the calming impact of literature and the timelessness of fashion despite having been changed over the course of years. Other vivid colors I've included are the result of the indulgence of other senses when literature and fashion are combined.
🇭🇰 In the Hong Kong design, I focused on the traditional and modern lives living together, to the hectic streets of the city and the multi-colored cuisine culture. I expressed the blend of modern and traditional lifestyles boldly with hues of red. Moreover, the hectic streets and the unlimitedly colorful cuisine with blue and green colors. The iconic red boat of the city, the dynamism of the horse and the joy on the faces of spectators are the perfect description of Hong Kong for me.
🇺🇸 New York first comes into mind as the metropolitan city of the world.I tried to display a prominent charm of the city, diversity, using other vivid colors. The iconic Statue of Liberty, joyful people in the city and their sense of becoming free with art are some other factors I've been inspired while portraying New York.
I designed this new collage for Luxury Surfaces, Inc. (LUX) which is a Silicon Valley based design + build firm.
This playful collage conveys Silicon Valley’s iconic entrepreneurial culture and landscape, picturing the unique tech “bubble”.
The Silicon Valley is a place for fast forward thinkers and dreamers. It is a place where dreams come true and the "big idea" dictates the build of a brighter new future every day. This is a place where failure leads to strength and everything is indeed possible.

who picks the oscar winners?
We’re less than a week away from the Academy Awards, and somewhere an accountant is counting up votes and figuring out what name to write inside an envelope that says “supporting actor.” That name could very well be Mahershala Ali, who turned in an excellent performance in the film “Moonlight.” But how exactly does that name get in that envelope, and how exactly did Ali get on that list of nominees? In this video, we explore the mysterious and fascinating Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the group that decides who gets to win an Oscar.
I've throughly enyojed designing the collages in this video! It was a fun experience to collaborate with FiveThirtyEight from NYC, such a cheerful team of journalists and animators whom have done their best to give you a brief education about 2017 oscars and the academy.
