Today I was punched in the face by a man who got out of his car and yelled, “Trump 2016!” in Los Angeles, just days after I returned home from London and just down the road from my house. Though I encourage passion, opinion and emotion, especially though art, I think violence is disgusting.

To live in a place where Facebook has given my address to an anonymous third party makes me feel like I am homeless again. This type of violence makes creatives feel like we live in a world where our individual creative input isn’t safe.

I am sad that this is the state of our America right now. I am sad that Trump, and many of his supporters, don’t find words enough to express their opinions – they need walls, waterboarding and punches. @realdonaldtrump,Please stop glamorizing and perpetuating violence. Make America Decent Again! ‪#‎makeamericadecentagain‬

No, they have not been caught, and the men drove off laughing. A detailed police report has been filed.

Including “I am a stupid c*nt.  Illma Gore is committed to her project.

Illma Gore is a street artist who’s endeavoring to cover her entire body in other people’s names and designs.

Earlier this year, Illma uprooted a Kickstarter campaign to fund an art project that “uses [her]self as a canvas” by “filling [her] body, head to toe, in the names, stories, and pictures of others.”

For $10, you could get your name, or any idea your mind could muster, tattooed onto her body. She exceeded her $6,000 goal with a pledge of over $11,000.

She’s now started the tedious tattooing process.

Illma Gore’s, the artist who painted an unflattering nude of Donald Trump, which went on display at Maddox Gallery in London last month, said she has been threatened with legal action if she sells the infamous piece.

Illma Gore’s “Make America Great Again”, named after the Republican candidate’s campaign slogan, went on display at the Maddox gallery in Mayfair earlier this month, and is valued at £1 million.

Now the Los Angeles-based artist saysshe has received a phone call from an anonymous number threatening legal action if the painting was sold. “They claimed to be from Trump’s team,” she told the Independent.
