LOS ANGELES, CA, November 07, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Illma Gore, a Los Angeles based street artist known for her controversial Donald Trump nude portrait, complete with a micropenis, is an Australian born avant-garde provocateur. Illma finds inspiration from her challenges as a homeless youth on the streets of Australia, an experience that served as her foundation as a political artist. Undeterred after being punched in the face by one of Trump's supporters, her art comments on societal views, politics, sexual identity, and life lessons, and explores what the public finds fascinating and revolting.
Illma is currently preparing for the virtual reality live stream "Creating a Political Monster." She proclaims "This should cheer America up" on this most contentious Election Day. "Creating a Political Monster" is a full 360-degree live mixed virtual reality performance where Illma exposes "the monster." This live performance art piece utilizes the application TiltBrush and will be interactively art-directed by audience suggestions. Produced by Machinima, the live stream will be available on November 8th via Machinima's Facebook page.

By inviting strangers to tattoo anything that they wanted onto her body for The Human Canvas Project, Illma garnered significant attention celebrating her as a free spirit, and revulsion by those who see her as irreversibly denigrating her young, adult body. Illma's been both celebrated and censored throughout the world, and is globally known for her political art, including a nude drawing of Donald Trump complete with a micropenis. Gore has found her place in political protest art, but she identifies herself as a fine portraiture artist.
