Aaron Hauck is a graduate of the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD). He lives and works in New York City.
This painting is Hauck’s response to what he thinks is the scariest view of our current president, the view some people continue to have of him. That view is of a dignified, respectable, “tell it like it is” champion of the underdog. He used a beautifully composed and shot image of him, painted a very literal rendering but couldn’t put it out and accidentally perpetuate that image. Only the orientation let’s you know it’s not right.
