Jim Carrey’s best politically-inspired artwork to-date

Beginning in the early 2010s, famed Hollywood actor Jim Carrey turned his attention from the silver screen to the infinite visual possibilities afforded by a blank canvass. Carrey’s paintings started mainly as abstract representations of historical figures and subjects regarding the emotional-self.

Now, the 56-year-old Canadian-born dual U.S. citizen has focused his artistic wrath on the American political scene, tweeting new portraits of politicians and other movers and shakers on an almost daily basis since November.

Here is a handpicked sample of Carrey’s best politically inspired artwork to-date:

Other related Carrey paintings include an angry depiction of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders with the caption: “This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!”, a picture of Donald Trump’s sons gored by an elephant and Marco Rubio with “the blood of innocent children” on his hands.
