Trump Nightmare by Simanion Trump Nightmare by Simanion
*EDIT 10 November 2016* Well...shit :| The nightmare has become reality. 

Acrylic on canvas.

I very rarely attempt portraits but I was compelled to after experiencing a Trump nightmare. :pumpkin:

It was just after Trump had announced he was running for President and he was scheduled to visit a nearby Chinese souvenir shop (?) so I'd turned up to take videos and laugh at Trump. When he got out of the limo I was shocked to se
e an oversized (like 2.5m tall), grotesque, paper mache bobble head Trump. I was videoing and laughing, and silently questioning this world but he spotted me in the crowd and saw into my soul and, with frightening speed, started to chase me through wheat fields and cities, shaky cam style, accompanied by henchmen. It felt like it lasted hours.

It was probably my brain telling me that although he's ridiculous and hilarious to behold, he's actually a very, very horrifying reality.

He's pretty much a walking, talking cartoon so I felt like a lot of the work was already done for me. I kept having to go back and exaggerate features because the real Trump was more caricaturish than my painting! Haha.

Hope you enjoy, get a laugh or at least are slightly disturbed.

This is very abstract work that is very interesting and unique. I like the texture of his hair and also the texture of the paint you used. The background of the painting tells the viewer of a nightmarish scene. His faces shows a evil feeling that makes it look like a nightmare. The shading was done dramatically to make it look scary. You choose a great way to paint this picture with all of the texture you used to make it as if the painting was sticking out. The play of colors on his face makes the painting stick out and come to life. The techniques you used in this painting are amazing.
What do you think?

I do as well. I still can't believe this is actually a reality. Drawing, writing, and speaking about it have been the only ways I've found to cope with it. I don't possess the talent that you do obviously, but it's creating something through self expression nonetheless. :)

Keep your chin up and keep creating! You're incredible.
