Los Angeles artist creates blood painting in protest of Donald Trump

CULVER CITY, Calif. -- Inside the Samuel Freeman Gallery in Culver City's arts district, a bloody call to arms is about to be unveiled.

A group of artists are working on a protest work in human blood against President-elect Donald Trump.

More than 20 pints of blood have been donated so far by artists, musicians and activists for the painting by artist Illma Gore.

"We weren't planning anything until he was actually elected and decided to make a statement, a protest against his inauguration," Gore said.

The plan is to have the completed piece on display to the public this Sunday, just five days before the inauguration.

Gore is working with the activist collective Indecline, the same group that created and covertly installed naked statues of Donald Trump in five different cities on the same day last August.
