Bloody Painting

about Illma Gore

Best known for her controversial Donald Trump artwork, for which she has been repeatedly blocked by Facebook and received death threats from Trump supporters — then culminated in a real beating —, Illma Gore is continuing on her battle, without fear, as demonstrated by her latest “bloody” project.

Inside the Samuel Freeman Gallery, in Culver City’s arts district, along with activist collective Indecline — the same group that created and covertly installed naked statues of Donald Trump in five different cities on the same day last August — she’s working on a protest work in human blood against the new President. More than 20 pints of blood have been donated so far by artists, musicians and activists for Illma’s painting: “We weren’t planning anything until he was actually elected and decided to make a statement, a protest against his inauguration”.




Despite being censored by the DMCA in USA, her Make America Great Again has gone viral since its release in February 2016, being shared 260,000 times and seen over 50 million times on the internet according to Imgur and Reddit statistics: “Make America Great Again was created to evoke a reaction from its audience, good or bad, about the significance we place on our physical selves. One should not feel defined by their penis size or vagina, as it does not determine who you are. Your genitals do not dictate your gender, your power, or your status. Simply put, you can be a massive prick, despite what is in your pants”.

Australian-American, living and working in Los Angeles, to Illma “where you show your art does not determine success. Your accomplishments as an artist are what determine success, no matter where they happen”.
