Whether you’re jeering (or cheering?) over the 2016 presidential election outcome, if you want to go into the mind of very controversial legendary artist and #WBWD Robert Cenedella for his thoughts of Donald J. Trump, I have a treat for you.
Robert Cenedella is a 20-year vet in the art world, and he has always made controversial art, so much he is named the “Art Bastard.” When he unveiled the “Fin del Mundo,” meaning “End of the World” (pictured up top), he pictured Donald J. Trump in the lower middle of a half black half white woman to pay tribute to Trump’s “infamous” comments about women. He also created a broken liberty bell with names of the black lives we’ve lost due to violence mixed in with racism. This pic is so detailed with his version of what could soon be the “Donald Trump” world.
In an interview I had with Robert, the “Artist Bastard” himself said that he has Hitler in the drawing to compare Trump to Hitler himself. Obviously, Candella has no problem speaking his mind and letting us into his mind with his art, and I must say it speaks volumes. In a country that says it values the ideals of the constitution, Candella truly embodies the First Amendment, the right to free speech.
The beautiful piece was featured at the “Central Park Fine Arts Gallery” in New York City.
No matter what happens over the next four years, remember to believe in yourself first and have and awesome day!
