  • Actor Jim Carrey has become a political artist and activist on Twitter, amassing over 18 million followers.
  • He regularly tweets politically charged and timely artwork – and has sparked backlash in some cases.
  • A clear style emerged in the art back in November.

Actor Jim Carrey has gained a reputation recently for not only being something of a recluse, but for being an outspoken political artist and activist on Twitter.

Carrey has been busier than usual this month. He’s tweeted drawings that criticize everyone from Mark Zuckerberg for Facebook’s handling of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, to President Trump in a sexually explicit drawing.

And he has sparked controversies, such as the conservative backlash he got earlier this month for posting an unflattering image of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, in which he called her “monstrous.”

But when did this new style of art from Carrey begin?

The first public instance appears to be in November. A drawing of former strategist to Trump, Steve Bannon, that Carrey tweeted on November 10, 2017, seems to have set a precedent for the art that would come after it. The art features Bannon’s face with the word “fool” drawn over it. That same day, Carrey tweeted a drawing of former Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore. Similar to the Bannon piece, Moore’s face had the word “danger” drawn over it.

Carrey has regularly posted drawings since then, almost always inspired by current political events. His Twitter has attracted over 18 million followers.

We don’t know what Carrey will say next, or what art he’ll post, but until then, we’ve rounded up a selection of his politically artistic tweets since he debuted the distinct style in November.
