Lucian Wintrich is a gay right-wing photographer known for a photo series called “Twinks for Trump” featuring seminude gay men wearing MAGA hats. It was exhibited at the 2016 RNC. His bathing partner Brian Alarcon (right), has also modeled for Twinks. Wintrich then organized the first pro-Trump art show in New York, titled "Daddy Will Save Us" featuring art from popular alt right figures like Milo Yiannopoulos and Martin Skreli. Wintrich says he has been called the "wrong kind of gay" by liberals for supporting Donald Trump in this election.
Art, Great Again! (2016-17) is a portrait series of artists responding to the 2016 presidential elections. The project focuses on 14 New York based artists who convey a range of political leanings, certainties, artistic styles, mediums, and subject matter in their work. It documents the emergence of “deplorable” artists catering to the conservative bias, and many responsive works from the political left protesting or satirizing the new Trump administration.
