Lennart Gäbel
Surreal White House


Commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
The German weekly newspaper asked me to visually comment on the first 100 days of the Trump presidency. I was given absolute freedom.

How was the illustration used:
I was printed in large scale on the first inside page of DIE ZEIT.

How did you make this work:
Even after 100 days into the Trump administration, every tweet or comment by Trump made me wonder "Is this really happening?" It all felt/feels so surreal that I had the idea of showing Trump in his own surrealistic Escher-like White House in which neither facts nor the law of space and time seems to apply.
