Jim Carrey is opening a political art exhibit — here are 9 of his most memorable drawings, many of which angered conservatives
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.”
