UK-born and now, Melbourne-based artist Stephen Ives has created ‘Mr Dictator Head’, a series of sculptures that has depicted some of the world’s most recognised dictator figures in the form of the popular children’s toy, Mr Potato Head.

Characterised by the toy’s multiple removable parts, the collection includes well-known political characters such as Stalin, Saddam Hussein, Idi Amin, Hitler, Lenin, Kim Jong Il, Mao Zedong and even Margaret Thatcher, now she has been called many things, but dictator? Ives’ heads work bears a striking resemblance to his ‘dictator’ subjects by adding eyebrows, hair, noses and other added extras, the plastic figurines juxtapose the dictators with an accessible and endearing model form.What’s next, I wonder? How about, Guess Who?
