Pegasus, “Trump Hitler”

British-based street artist Pegasus has imagined Trump in full Nazi attire. Stenciled in black and white and painted on a Bristol pub, across Trump’s body is the reminder that “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it”.

Mindaugas Bonanu, “Make Everything Great Again”

Lithunian graphic designer and street artist Mindaugas Bonanu made a wheatpaste mural showing Putin and Trump locking lips, an update of the famous cold-war ear work, “My God, Help Me to Survive This Deadly Love “ of Brezhnev and Erich Honecker kissing in a socialist embrace. Putin and Trump are wearing the most Russian of leisure wear, a training suit. The image, which first appeared on a Vilnius restaurant, has been widely circulated, thanks in part to a website where the image is available on shirts, cups, and iPhone cases.

t.Rutt, “T.RUMP Bus”

The artists collective t.Rutt has transformed a Trump bus into a mobile installation and performance art piece. The two t.Rutt artists, Mary Mihelic and David Gleeson, purchased the bus after the Trump campaign posted it for sale on Craigslist following the Iowa caucuses. The piece has more subtlety that a lot of Trump protest art, not least of all because at first glance the bus looks to be a regular Trump campaign bus. Upon closer examination, the Trump banner has been transformed to T.Rump with the slogan “Make Fruit Punch Great Again”. Gently alluding to Trump’s fascist tendencies, the side window the artists have listed some things Trump might do in his own version of “My Struggle”, including “To love myself” and “To not exploit bankruptcy”. Another window has a “manhood measuring station”.
