Interesting art

Lush has made some very important work lately in regard to censorship and political correctness. He had painted a mural of Hillary Clinton in a stars and stripes mankini. It was quite revealing and satirical. The work came under fire from the local council as it has a near naked woman. The council were not worried about the depiction of Hillary Clinton but its near naked inappropriateness in a public space. Lush had his Instagram account deleted so he was adamant to make a statement about his situation. So he turned Hillary into a burqa clad Muslim chiding those who found it unsettling as bigots and Islamaphobes. He managed to cover a lot of ground with both depictions. The circus of American politics and the circus of not offending people. It was a great come back from an artist in a difficult situation.
