Donald Trump garnered plenty of controversy during his election campaign to become US president. A lot of people criticized Trump for what they consider his controversial and offensive comments as well as outdated policies. One woman, however, took an unusual step by making her protest in the form of a portrait of the now president painted with period blood.
Artist Sarah Levy decided to create the portrait using her own menstrual blood after remarks made by Trump about Megyn Kelly. The comments were made after Kelly had moderated a debate between Trump and other Republican nominees.
“I heard the comments he made to Megyn Kelly and I was outraged that he was basically using women’s periods not just to avoid a political question but also to insult her and all women’s intelligence,” said Levy.
Sarah said it was easy to create the artwork, even though, she had used a strange medium to paint with. “I could basically use it like watercolors with a paintbrush,” she revealed. “I definitely recommend painting with your menstrual blood.” In fact, the process is so easy that she is hoping to create more paintings with blood in the future.
