In this clothbound, hardcover volume, acclaimed artist Ward Schumaker transforms the egregious utterances of the 45th president of the United States of America into provocative text-based paintings. Translating the politics of our moment into visceral works of art, Schumaker offers an alternative to the desensitizing barrage of the news media. Refusing to sanitize or explain these statements, he intuitively features our collective dismay, confusion, and outrage at the stream of vitriol and contempt currently emanating from the White House.
Ward Schumaker is a San Francisco–based artist whose paintings and hand-painted books have appeared in one-man shows in Shanghai, San Francisco, New York, and Los Angeles. Formerly an illustrator, his work has appeared in over 150 magazines worldwide, including The New York Times, The Atlantic, Le Monde, and Esquire Japan.
