These elections have been long and tiresome, with plenty of animosity on either side.
However, from every democratically controversial event in history, comes a wealth of incredible art and music.
We’ve collected some of the awe-inspiring political work artists have already done, and it is plain to see the distain from within the creative contemporary world.

His work features dark humour and satire, combined with popular culture.
These specific acrylic works are pretty shocking to look at, but they cannot get much more shocking than this election as a whole.

Art has restored cities and stopped wars, and hopefully these events will continue to inspire revolutionary work that will make history again.
