Young artists attacked over Trump nude
Illma Gore, the young artist who painted a nude, unflattering portrait of Donald Trump that went viral online was attacked near her Los Angeles home. She was struck in the face by a man shouting “Trump 2016.”
She’s received numerous threats of death and rape, and currently faces an anonymous copyright infringement lawsuit, even though she insists the image is completely her own creative work.
She’s currently showing the painting in London, and it’s for sale there for 1 million pounds. Some of the proceeds will go towards Los Angeles charities for children.
