Welcome to the world of Cold War Steve, the alias of Christopher Spencer, an artist whose absurdist, satirical photomontages have appeared on Twitter since 2016. His early work centred on Cold War scenes. Reagan and Gorbachev guzzling lager in the Oval Office while the actor Steve McFadden dozes under a desk. McFadden, in the guise of boozy bruiser Phil Mitchell, his character in EastEnders, is a constant figure in these bizarre and riotous tableaux.

The Cold War gives way to a culture war; now the interminable soap opera of Brexit provides the backdrop for Spencer’s expanding cast of grotesques and goons.

That's all very well Stoo. But is it art?

Is it?

A certain Hogarthian vibe to them.
