Donald Trump has funneled life-blood into a fervent new protest art movement. Artists and photographers are speaking out against Trump's comments and policies with paintbrushes, cameras -- and even bodily fluids. From LED signs to paintings made with human blood, here are 10 thought-provoking pieces of protest art that have emerged since Trump announced his candidacy for president.
Portland-based artist Sarah Levy painted this portrait with her own menstrual blood. The piece, titled "Whatever," is a response to Trump's comment that Fox News host Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever."
As part of a series called "#SignedByTrump," Aria Watson snapped this photo for a final project in her Intro to Photography class at Clatsop Community College in Oregon. Models posed partially nude with Trump quotes written on their skin.
The Untitled Space
Indira Cesarine, founder of The Untitled Space art gallery in New York City, posed in front of pieces from the "Uprising/Angry Women" exhibit. The exhibit premiered in January and featured works by women artists.
This piece by Julie Curtiss, titled "Hot Heels," was featured at the "Nasty Women" art exhibition in Queens, New York. According to co-director Jessamyn Fiore, the exhibit was "a message to Trump and the government that you can’t roll back women’s rights without a fight."
Shepard Fairey, the artist behind the iconic Barack Obama "Hope" poster, created this image for Inauguration Day as a way to "reject the hate, fear and open racism that were normalized during the 2016 presidential campaign." The woman pictured is 33-year-old Muslim-American, Munira Ahmed.

An NYC grassroots campaign called "Resistance Is Female" utilized telephone booths to showcase protest art and to encourage people to "keep fighting, keep speaking up, persevere."
Continuing the bloody trend, Los Angeles-based artist Illma Gore collaborated with the artist collective, Indecline, to create this mural. The mural, titled "Rise Up Thy Young Blood," was painted with human blood from 50 donors and recalls Henry Mosler's 19th-century painting, "The Birth of the Flag."

Inspired by cardboard protest signs, artist Andrea Bowers made this sign as a "feminist gesture." According to Bowers, "I feel outraged that Donald Trump was elected after what he said publicly about women."
The anonymous street artist known as Bambi painted this parody of the movie "La La Land" in Islington, North London. In lieu of Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, the work shows Donald Trump dancing with U.K. Prime Minister, Theresa May.
New York-based illustrator Daniel Pagan created this piece, called "Tweeter in Chief." In an interview with Fusion
, Pagan described Trump's election as "'sheer fuel' for his art."
