American-Israeli artist Iddo Markus couldn't stop painting Donald Trump. Iddo Markus flaunts oil color works on canvas and wood that feature 120 shades of Donald Trump as a part of a portrait series. Now he deals with people reacting with anger and disgust to his work.
The face is obscure and grim, but the blonde comb-over and tie leave no doubt that the image carpeting the studio of Israeli painter Iddo Markus is that of Donald Trump.
He is saying that he doesn't like him but he was nonetheless fascinated by the now "tragic figure".
When the billionaire presented his candidacy for the 2016 presidential election, the Israeli artist said he "couldn't believe it". But he could not tear his eyes from the man with the "orange face and yellow hair", whose image and laconic prose inundated television networks and social media for more than four years.
His arts depict a man with a distorted face, but whose silhouette is immediately recognizable.
Markus has dubbed the portrait series "The Apprentice", after the reality TV show that contributed to Trump's popularity.
