Juan Francisco Casas Takes on Trump (NSFW)

January 31, 2017

In his most recent piece, hyperreal ballpoint artist Juan Francisco Casas visualizes his thoughts about the new POTUS. Casas' exhibited drawings are created at an enormous scale given the medium he chooses to use, and compositions of this size have traditionally been used in art to commemorate royalty and historical events, Casas utilizes the medium to memorialize his personal and provocative exploits. Described as “art for the selfie generation,” his seductive portraits transform viewers into voyeurs, intrigued by what happened prior and after the snapshot was taken.
