    OUCH! Harsh art!

    That bowl of ice cream is obviously suggestive.

    Portrait of Huck Sanders looks spot on, though. :D

    WOw, very impressive. I like Jim Carrey. The Truman show is amazing.

    I never cared for him as an actor, but I love his art! I've been watching his political portraits for a while now, and they are harsh.

    I dislike Carrey but the art piece is pretty good.

    "Trump is a bad person. All he does is insult others and make fun of how people look. When they go low, we go high!" - Democrats in 2016 (before the hypocrisy was exposed)

    And didn't Carrey cause so much grief to his girlfriend she committed suicide? He allegedly gave her herpes and other STDs. Some hero.

    I dislike him (as an actor), and this art piece is awful.

    He was OK during his streak in the 90s (but I preferred Robin Williams). He was a jerk to people in real life (while Robin was chill and super nice).

    But I won't deny his streak is one of the most impressive in cinema history. Hit after hit after hit.

    I guess you could call it art, but I would classify it as political cartoon.

    I don’t know whether I “like” that painting or not.

    It’s garish, amateurish and vulgar.

    That said, those descriptors reflect its subject perfectly.

    That’s what I meant, I dont care for him as an actor. I think his art talent is undeniable, whether or not it matches a person’s taste is a different topic.

    So if one democrat acts like a dick, we all are hypocrites? Carrey was found not guilty I believe of being responsible for her girl friends suicide.

    Never really liked his acting style. His art is something else. Gets the point across, shows raw emotion. I won't say if it's good or bad art, because I really don't know.
