"MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN" 11"X14" PASTEL PENCILS, 2016

"Make America Great Again" was created to evoke a reaction from its audience, good or bad, about the significance we place on our physical selves. One should not feel emasculated by their penis size or vagina, as it does not define who you are. Your genitals do not define your gender, your power, or your status.

Simply put, you can be a massive prick, despite what is in your pants.

Feminist artist Ilma Gore, 24, is no stranger to controversy, and she has faced a barrage of social media abuse from supporters of Republican front-runner Donald Trump since her nude painting of Trump with a micropenis went viral on Facebook earlier this year. On Friday, the artist's critics took their threats up a notch: Gore alleges that a Trump supporter physically attacked her in Los Angeles.

On Saturday, Gore shared a selfie of a black-eye on Instagram, alleging that she was assaulted by a Trump supporter near her home.

Today I was punched in the face by a man who got out of his car and yelled, "Trump 2016!" in Los Angeles, just days after I returned home from London just down the road from my house. Though I encourage passion, opinion and emotion, especially through art, I think violence is disgusting. To live in a place where Facebook has given my address to an anonymous third party makes me feel like I am homeless again. This type of violence makes creatives feel like we live in a world where our individual creative input isn't safe. I am sad that this is the state of our America right now. I am sad that Trump, and many of his supporters, don't find words enough to express their opinions - they need walls, waterboarding and punches. @realdonaldtrump Please stop glamorizing and perpetuating violence. Make America Decent Again! #makeamericadecentagain No, they have not been caught, and the men drove off laughing. A detailed police report has been filed.


ATTN: spoke to the artist on the phone about the incident, which she explained happened on Friday, around 12:40 p.m.

"I have been receiving a lot threats of violence through social media, and in my inbox since the image of the artwork [of Donald Trump] went viral," Gore explained. "I've had a couple of people yell out, or notice who I am because of the image, or because of my tattoos."

"I'd been home from London for about a week, and I was walking to the art store by my house," she said. "I was actually walking on a through street, from a main road."

Gore continued:

"And as I walking, a car of guys yelled out slurs and yelled out 'Trump 2016' and that was what I heard, audibly, and I started texting my girlfriend and told her about it. I just ignored it, because it's happened before, so it's not too odd. Then, they pulled over in front of me, about 20 feet in front of me after driving past and I continued to ignore them and walk. They weren't yelling anything [then], they just pulled over, and when I went to walk past the car, one of the guys got out of the passenger seat and hit me, and yelled 'Trump 2016' and they all laughed and drove off."


Afterwards, Gore told ATTN: that she went to a Culver City police station, but they told her to go to a different Los Angeles station, where she ultimately filed a detailed police report.

She claims Trump is "glamorizing and perpetuating violence."

"It’s scary to think — in this day and age — that any artist who uses their artwork to speak could be just hit for it," Gore told ATTN:. But she also saw a particular pattern of violence among Trump supporters.

"It's personally kind of embarrassing for me to post something like that on social media because I knew there would be a lot of backlash," Gore added, "but the fact that there's someone out there who thinks that sort of casual violence is okay, is super frightening to me. So that was more important."

Some of Gore's critics have accused her of "asking" to be physically harmed, according to artist. Others have alleged that she was lying about being assaulted.

"It’s sad people say that I deserve this, because I painted him and disrespected him, when Donald Trump is literally a racist and is disrespectful to people," she told ATTN:.

This isn't the first time Gore has faced disturbing responses from Trump supporters. After her painting "Make America Great Again" went viral on Facebook in February, she "received thousands of death threats" that led her to flee to the U.K., according to an April report on the Guardian. An anonymous Digital Millennium Copyright Act was also filed against Gore, which led social media pages to censor the painting and eBay to de-list it, the Guardian reported.

She told ATTN: that she took the painting to Europe after she received "really, violent, detailed threats" including death and rape threats. Galleries were also worried about the safety of displaying the in the U.S., she explained.

"I really think it is because of the way Trump is glamorizing violence," Gore said of the incident.

Trump has repeatedly come under fire due to the culture of violence surrounding his campaign.

"I think it's just kind of indicative of where we are and where America is," she added. "It's so sad to see how many people are being hurt; it's so many protesters, even on Donald Trump’s side are getting hurt. And I've never seen that in an election."

Gore is not the first person to accuse Trump of encouraging his supporters to take justice into their own hands when faced with protesters and Trump detractors.

In late March, Twitter users created the hashtag #SaferThanATrumpRally to satirically point out the hazards of these campaign events, compared to comparably safe activities like driving off a cliff, and drinking water from the city of Flint.

Trump responded that his supporters "have anger that’s unbelievable. They love this country." He also maintained that he hadn't witnessed any violence personally. "I heard about it, which I don’t like," he added.

Earlier in the campaign, protester was sucker-punched at Trump rally in North Carolina, and former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields alleged that Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski grabbed her violently after a press conference, while she was trying to ask the candidate a question. As ATTN: has previously reported, from a Las Vegas rally, the GOP front-runner also said he would like to punch a protester in the face.

Just this weekend, Trump supporters and protesters clashed violently at California campaign events — which illustrated how tensions have escalated among Trump and anti-Trump camps alike.

Still, the painter maintained that she isn't going anywhere — even if Trump is our next president.

"I definitely will be staying here, and I will be staying here if Trump is elected as president," she told ATTN:, but added that she's taking precautions to protect her own safety.

"I painted Donald Trump nude, so I knew there was going to be some sort of reaction from people, I wasn't sure what that was," Gore explained. "But I've always told my friends and those around me that if it did lead to some sort of violence then it did, and I would stand by it and tell the truth, and be honest."

An infamous nude of Donald Trump has attracted bids of over £100,000 after it went on display at the Maddox Gallery in Mayfair, London, last week, but the artist is being anonymously threatened with legal action if she sells it, due to its resemblance to the Republican presidential hopeful.

The piece by Illma Gore, titled Make America Great Again, depicts Trump with a small penis. It went viral in February after the artist published it on her Facebook page and has since been censored on social media sites and delisted from eBay after the anonymous filing of a Digital Millennium Copyright Act notice threatening to sue Gore.

The Maddox Gallery in London offered to exhibit the painting after galleries in the US refused to host the piece due to security concerns following threats of violence from Trump’s supporters. Hundreds of visitors have queued to see the work.

Gore said: “The reaction, especially in the UK, has been incredibly supportive. Everywhere apart from America has been great. Who knew it would be such a big deal? I think an artist’s job is to take the times we’re living in and then set the scene. It is a representation of where we are.”

The LA-based artist has received thousands of death threats and travelled to the UK to escape the frenzy, agreeing to allow Mayfair to manage the sale of the controversial painting, now priced at £1m.

Cordelia de Freitas, Maddox gallery director, said: “It only really got out of hand when Donald Trump referenced it in a debate, which sums up Trump and his ego. From there, everyone wanted to see this image.”

Gore believes her work inspired Marco Rubio’s comments about the size of Trump’s hands at a Virginia rally in late February, where he said: “And you know what they say about men with small hands? You can’t trust them.”

On 3 March, Trump responded: “[Rubio] referred to my hands, if they are small, something else must be small. I guarantee you there is no problem. I guarantee.”

The size of Trump’s hands dominated the Republican primaries that week, and was even discussed at an editorial meeting with the Washington Post, where he defended his comments.

Trump’s sensitivity about his hands is believed to date back to Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter’s description of him as a “short-fingered vulgarian” in the 1980s.

Gore states she will donate her part of the fee for the painting to the charity Safe Place for Youth, a homeless shelter in Los Angeles.

Illma Gore said she received an anonymous call from someone claiming to be on Donald Trump's campaign team

The artist behind a nude picture of Donald Trump has been threatened with a lawsuit if she sells it.

Illma Gore's painting of the US Republican hopeful, which is displayed at the Maddox Gallery in London and depicts Trump with a small penis, caused huge controversy after a picture of the work went viral on Facebook.

She told the Independent she received a call from an anonymous number last week threatening legal action if the piece was sold.

"They claimed to be from Trump's team," she said.


But Ms Gore is not intimidated by the threats and said she would still go ahead with a sale and had planned to donate a protion of the money to Safe Place for Youth, a charity which supports homeless young people.

"It is my art and I stand by it. Plus anyone who is afraid of a fictional penis is not scary to me," she said.

Make America Great Again, which has been valued at £1m, was banned in the US and the artist says she has received numerous death threats from pro-Republican supporters.

The painting, which was made public in February, has been censored on social media and had to be taken down from eBay after previous threats to sue Ms Gore under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.


"People put so much power into what genitals should be or look like. If you take away this man's face for example, you get a painting of a typical body figure you will learn in any fine arts course.

"But once you put Donald Trumps face on the body, it leaves a specific connotation to it all, dependent on whether you like him or not. It really shouldn't matter. Basically you can be a massive p***k despite what is in your pants!" she told the Independent.

After her work was taken off eBay, Ms Gore pledged to re-list her work and donate $100 to the Democrat Party every time it was taken down again.
