Los Angeles artist Illma Gore paints Trump mural in human blood

Los Angeles based artist Illma Gore continued to make headlines with another anti-Trump illustration and this time it’s in human blood.

The artist collective, Indecline, approached Gore to team up on a mural illustrating a phrase from Shakespeare’s King Richard: “Rise Up Thy Young Blood.”

Gore’s work was inspired by Henry Mosler’s 19th-century painting, “The Birth of the Flag,” which depicts Betsy Ross and her seamstresses sewing the first Stars and Stripes.

More than 20 pints of blood have been donated so far by artists, musicians and activists

“We weren’t planning anything until he was actually elected and decided to make a statement, a protest against his inauguration,” Gore said.
“I would say it’s anti-racism, anti-divisiveness, it’s anti-bigotry, it’s anti-not listening people, except for coming together and saying we are here and we will do anything.”
She attempting to bash Trump and portray diversity: a white man in a “Make America Great Again” cap can be seen beside a black businessman, next to a police officer who is working beside a millennial — and a Latina woman is holding the flag next to a Muslim couple with a baby.
Indecline is just a group of artists producing anti-Trump works and their propaganda includes nude Trump, one statue with “no balls” and tons of dictator references.
