Part of a portrait of Donald Trump by Efrat Ilan

Israeli artist to present Trump and Clinton paintings in US exhibit

Artist Efrat Ilan's portraits of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are the only pieces of artwork produced by an Israeli to be selected for the Florida exhibit.

The paintings of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump by Israeli artist Efrat Ilan were accepted to the “Faces” exhibit in Miami, Florida.

 

 

The only Israeli artist to be featured in the exhibit, Ilan’s work was selected from submissions made by thousands of artists from across the globe. Ilan said that she paints many celebrity portraits, which include supermodel Bar Rafaeli, musician Elton John and Hollywood icons Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor. She confessed that the political subject matter of Clinton and Trump was linked to her desire to participate in a US exhibit.
