Although comedic actor Jim Carrey has been drawing and painting since childhood, he got the itch to go political about seven years ago.Now with Twitter as a platform, he’s being scratched back — especially with his portrait of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Carrey stands accused of sexism for the Sanders piece.
But on Spin.com, Winston Cook-Wilson writes: “It’s probably most instructive to see Carrey’s incendiary study of Sanders in the context of his other pieces depicting political figures with an attention to realistic facial details: for instance, his gory Marco Rubio portrait, his Willard-referencing sketch of Trey Gowdy as a rat, his ominous closeup of Roy Moore sneering sadistically, or his poignant picture of Lincoln weeping in reaction to Trump’s 2018 State of the Union speech.”
Cook-Wilson says the Sanders work is one of Carrey’s most fleshed-out and visually pleasing works.
Now Carrey has gone back to a favorite subject: Donald Trump.
“He unveiled a new one portraying … Trump as the Wicked Witch of the West from ‘The Wizard of Oz.’ Carrey captioned it, ‘The Wicked Witch of the West Wing and Putin’s flying monkeys,'” said USA Today.
Carrey’s website says his other serious art, including oil paintings, can be viewed at Wyland Galleries Beachwalk in Waikiki, Hawaii, and Wyland Galleries Lake Tahoe, where he is a permanent artist.

Rubio‘s agenda is clear. Keep taking millions from the NRA and wash the blood of innocent children off his hands. Apparently $3.3 million is the price of this politician’s soul. pic.twitter.com/wom4IrTfsj

It’s President's Day and Chief Little Hands has been busy tweeting from his golf resort, a chip shot away from the latest bloody school shooting. He was hoping to play a few holes while grieving families are busy digging them. I support @cameron_kasky #neveragain pic.twitter.com/ndJcrk3Sw5

It should no longer be a surprise to people that Caveman Trump would hire a man like Porter, who’s accused of beating his wives. If you want nasty things done, you hire nasty people. That’s how criminal syndicates thrive. #impeachprehistoricpotus pic.twitter.com/86JaEMcp2M
