- Actor Jim Carrey has gained a reputation this year for being a political artist. He regularly posts new drawings on Twitter.
- Later this month, he’ll open an art exhibit showcasing his work.
- We’ve rounded up Carrey’s most memorable drawings that grabbed headlines and controversy ahead of the opening of the exhibit.
Actor Jim Carrey is making a comeback on the screen with his new Showtime series, „Kidding,“ but his main claim to fame this year has been his outspoken political statements against President Trump and the Republican party.
Carrey has grown a reputation for being a political activist and artist, and until „Kidding,“ he was somewhat of a recluse in recent years to focus on his new passion for art. He regularly posts new drawings to his Twitter, which has garnered over 18 million followers, and he has been the topic of numerous headlines because of his sometimes controversial drawings.
According to The Los Angeles Times, Carrey is set to open an exhibit featuring his artwork in Los Angeles later this month, where his drawings will be shown to the public for the first time outside of Twitter. The exhibit, called “IndigNation,” runs from October 23 to December 1 at at the Maccarone Gallery.
„I get furious,“ Carrey told the Times of the current political climate. „Somedays, you feel like you’ve fed the dinosaur. But at some point, the truth has to tip over in the win column. And right now, the truth is taking a beating. Right now, we’ve got liars and salesmen, people who want to single us out because of the color of our skin. We’ve got policies based on skin color in 2018. Christ! It’s incredible to me.“
Ahead of the opening of the exhibit, we looked back at Carrey’s most memorable drawings:
Colleges care more about donors than the victims of on-campus rape. That’s why women don’t report it and why ENTITLED LITTLE SHITS like Injustice Kavanaugh get to party and pillage their way to the Supreme Court.I’d like to suggest a new uniform for the highest court in the land. pic.twitter.com/9piWob4jGh
Carrey called Brett Kavanaugh, the newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice accused of sexual misconduct, an „entitled little s—“ and suggested a new uniform for Justices: a ski mask over the face.
Manafort, GUILTY! Cohen, GUILTY! Flynn, Guilty! Gates, Guilty! What’s happening to All the Best People? “Ladies and Gentlemen! Children of all ages! Can the Great Spewdini spew enough lies to escape the straight-jacket of his un-Presidented criminality?” pic.twitter.com/qLiaEDfsuA
After Trump’s former associates Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen were both found guilty of separate federal crimes, Carrey drew Trump hanging from a flag pole and called him „the Great Spewdini,“ because he had spewed lies „to escape the straight-jacket of his un-Presidential criminality.“
“If the Democrats would just stop the Mueller investigation, build a wall, declare me a God and pass a special law allowing me to marry my hot daughter I wouldn’t have to devour these immigrant babies. It’s terrible what they’re doing. Obstructionists!” pic.twitter.com/LgOejCxRTN
Carrey delivered a scathing commentary of Trump’s zero-tolerance immigration policy, which separated children from their parents at the border, with a parody of Trump’s book „The Art of the Deal.“ Carrey called it „The Art of the Meal,“ and depicted Trump about to eat an immigrant baby.
