‘Donna’ Trump fighting Kim a big hit
– A painting of Donald Trump dressed as Wonder Woman and defeating “Rocket Man” – North Korea’s Kim JongUn – is a star attraction at international art festival Art Basel, which opened yesterday in Miami Beach.
The fair has become the US’ main art dealing hub since its first event in 2002.
Also on display are various works by Roy Lichtenstein and a painting by Willem de Kooning, valued at $35 million (R475 million).
The painting featuring the US president, titled President Trump Becomes a Wonder Woman, Unifies the Country and Fights Rocket Man, was one of the top works at a private viewing on Wednesday.
The parody piece by Peter Saul shows Trump in the iconic garb of the female superhero, punching caricatures of Kim Jong-Un.
Other attractions include a work by Ellsworth Kelly and a 1969 Lichtenstein that has not been displayed in years, said Noah Horowitz, director of the Americas for Art Basel.
