If you really think about it the age of Donald Trump has given life to a whole new wave of Art. I spoke about this really early back before his inauguration, the rage people have against Trump would cause this firestorm of new endeavors into the art world. Many will call it political art, but every piece of work is being sold for money and thus giving life into a new genre. One that shines an ugly truth.
You may hate the man, you may even despise him. But there is not a doubt in your mind that Trump has brought life into the art world. We’ve seen parody novels, and now we’ve seen artwork that is being distributed like crazy. We’re seeing a rage we haven’t seen in the Obama era, because now it’s socially acceptable to be angry. You couldn’t be angry when Obama was around. You were just frowned upon at best you would be called a racist. And trust me there was a lot to complain about during the Obama era. From growing markets of private prisons, the high rate of assassinations, unable to regulate big corporations, to bending down and becoming just a corporate Democrat. But such passion and rage could not be shown, you had to keep it hidden. You couldn’t say anything about the Administration. But today it’s okay to say such things because now we have a face we can hate.
Sad to say, but if Hillary Clinton had won we wouldn’t have this outrage. We wouldn’t even question everything wrong with the system, we would continue as life is normal. In a way you have to thank Trump for making more people more self-aware to the things happening around them. Will it last forever? That’s still unknown.
The people making money off shirts, hats, art work, books should be actually praying for another re-election, because like it or not people love to Rally against a villain. All those artists who made their money off the Trump era, wouldn’t have made their earnings if Hillary Clinton was President. In a way you can’t make money without the devil.
And in a way we become slaves to trend, the fire is lit as long as money is being made. What happens when the light goes off, will there be anyone willing to question the Injustice that’s happening or will they just simply come to the rescue when money is involved.
The truth is in your feed. How political was the world around you before Trump. Today is the only thing you see, from we must March, to we must stand, but where was that fire storm years ago? Occupy Wall Street was swept under the rug and the same Hillary supporters didn’t even lift a hand to stand with Occupy Wall Street. Trend can be good, but it could also destroy everything. Because if it’s not hot then nobody cares. And that’s what this new era of Trump has given life to and exposed to the world. The writing is on the all, just up to you to see it.
