2016 has been a nasty and long presidential election cycle. However one of the few good things to come of it has been the outpouring of election-inspired art. From political art cars to yarn puppets, artists have taken advantage of the absurdity of the ongoing madhouse and infused it with wit, creativity and culture. Donald Trump seems to be the most ubiquitous subject for artists, but Hillary Clinton comes in at a close second, and of course poor, Bernie Sanders hangs on by his fingernails in third place. Below are some of the more memorable depictions of the 2016 presidential candidates created by street artists, painters, illustrators, and textile artists across the countrywide and worldwide.
