Johannesburg: After it was censored in the United States, the painting depicting a nude Donald Trump went on show in London recently.
The creators of the painting claimed that they have received a thousand death threats from Trump’s supporters, reports News24.com.
Los-Angeles based artist Illma Gore’s ‘Make America Great Again,’ named after the Republican candidate’s campaign slogan, went on display at the Maddox gallery in the exclusive Mayfair neighbourhood on April 8 and it is valued at 1.4 million dollars.
The 24-year-old artist said that the ‘Make America Great Again’ was created to evoke a reaction from its audience, good or bad, about the significance one places on his physical self.
He added that he drew Trump nude, he was evoking a reaction from people. He tried not to think about it until he spoke to a lawyer who suggested him to go to the police about it and file a report in case something happens.
The work that imagines Trump with a small penis, has been banned from public display in the US and was pulled from social media following the filing of a Digital Millennium Copyright Act notice, claiming that the content infringed on their copyright. (ANI)
