Fernando Sosa, “Butt Plug Trump”

Political sculptor and graphic designer Fernando Sosa has created butt-plug sized versions of Trump. The artist, based in Orlando Florida, fabricated the pieces using a 3-D printer. While this isn’t the first time he’s developed butt-plug versions of political leaders, the medium seems especially appropriate for Trump. In his artist’s statement, Sosa seems especially animated by Trump’s comments on immigration and has made the work widely available. “I like the mental picture of his face going into people’s asses” Sosa told the Huffington Post.

Deborah Kass, “Vote Hillary”

New York artist Deborah Kass has created an update of Andy Warhol’s anti-Richard Nixon poster. The work uses the same combination of orange, blue, and yellow as the Warhol original. Warhol is an especially appropriate subject to mimic as he has appropriated so many images himself.

Phillip Kremer’s Trump photo art

Phillip Kremer, a Houston-based artist, has created digitally manipulated images of Trump. He moves facial features to stunning affect with a result that is at times hilarious and disturbing, leading others to suggest he may be the most terrifying artist on the web. He’s done this for other politicians, including Newt Gingrich and Ted Cruz, but the Trump pieces are some of the most numerous in his oeuvre. The technique is especially appropriate for Trump, suggesting what he might look like if his carefully prepared face were as grotesque as his policies, values, and behavior.
