Cheeky Street Art Send-Up of Donald Trump … Miracle Mile, Los Angeles 

Real-Estate developer, New York City fixture, celebrity, reality TV show star, and politician, Donald Trump is at the center of U.S. media coverage these days while he campaigns to win the Republican nomination as its candidate for the American presidency.

A polarizing, attention-hungry personality and demagogic political figure, Trump’s controversial views and bombast has in recent months made him the target of satirists and a subject of politically-charged street art by artists like Hanksy and Teacake poking fun at the presidential candidate.

Teacake’s circular wheat-paste poster on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles (pictured below) depicts “the Donald” on a playground ride holding what appears to be a sex toy. It’s funny street art as political commentary and as a mirror of contemporary culture.
