Anyone attending Frieze Art Fair in New York right now is in for a treat. Artist Dora Budor has been commissioned to create a new piece, which juxtaposes reality with filmic unreality. Lucky for us, the artist chose Leonardo DiCaprio as her subject.
Budor has hired three Leonardo DiCaprio lookalikes to impersonate some of the actor's most famous roles, in The Wolf of Wall Street, The Revenant and Catch Me If You Can. Understandably, fans on social media can't believe their eyes.
Budor told ArtNews, "I wanted to create the opportunity for unsuspecting visitors at the fair to experience a disjointed reality—believing that the actor Leonardo DiCaprio might be there, but seeing him, impossibly, many years younger and as characters he has played."
As DiCaprio has attended Frieze before, while hiding under his flat cap, it's not crazy to think that the actor might put in an appearance. However, for now, attendees will have to make do with his three doppelgängers.
