Creepy Trump Portraits By Phillip Kremer

Phillip-Kremer-Trump-720b

How do you launch an art career on Instagram and tumblr? Decide that Facebook isn’t the way, and get banned from Instagram at least once, apparently. There isn’t a lot of biographical info on Houston digital image manipulator Phillip Kremer’s tumblr or Instagram accounts, but his website provides some press links, and you can read an interesting interview he did with the non-profit Humble Art Foundation. Apparently Kremer works as a warehouse foreman in his other life. As he put it: “I took the job for the atmosphere. The office smells like stale cigarettes and is painted Oiler blue. Although it isn’t directly an art-related job, I use the 100 year old beams from the warehouse to make frames for my brother’s paintings, my 2nd job.” He did a show in Houston last year called Hells Belles, and you can find a lot of his works for sale on sites like Artsy, but the vibe he conveys in the HAF interview is one of a sort of amused indifference. When asked if he could explain his process a little, he said “No, because I’m not getting paid to promote any app or program, and I don’t think the process really matters as much as the feeling we get when viewing the images. Whether the image is cut and paste, shopped or painted doesn’t matter to me as much as the giggle or creep I get from the old businessman staring back at me.”

We don’t care much about his process either, but we do love his Trump manipulations:
