Police in Azerbaijan
Melissa Faithful for Art-Sheep
Gunduz Agayev, the cool illustrator and creator of the “Holy Selfie” series, has done it again with a new, provocative set of illustrations depicting police officers from various countries around the world. From Russia to Saudi Arabia, Agayev creates a satirical profile of policemen in countries where law is often bended.
Charging his characters with features of cruelty and corruption, as common people find in them, Agayev creates an original stereotypical portraiture that satirizes police behavior around the world. Often portrayed as good and decent officers, his subjects show how absurd, funny and sometimes very dangerous, police activity can be.
