The original painting is $2500 plus shipping—see all currently available artworks. There are prints and t-shirts of this piece in my Redbubble shop.
Painting the symbol of a bull crapping on the syringe was deeply satisfying to me. To explain: as a woman, society constantly pressures me to be quiet and sweet. While I’ve successfully broken out of the “good little girl” box in many areas of my life, I’ve stayed fairly pretty in my art. For years, I’ve chose to focus on the positive, veering only into the vaguely melancholy now and again. But all that changed with Trump’s response to the protests in Charlottesville last August and my Tiki torch Trump painting.
I’m not sure where this will lead, but the bull taking a dump is me drawing a line. Enough is enough when it comes to the “good little girl” box.
