Jim Carrey’s portrait of the “monstrous” Sarah Huckabee Sanders has gone viral since the comedian posted the artwork to his Twitter page on March 17, but the image is hardly the first time Carrey has stirred the pot with the brush. Carrey has been making political statement through his artwork for months, slamming the likes of Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, and Vladimir Putin, among many others.

Shortly after the high school shooting in Parkland, Florida last month, Carrey turned his attention towards the National Rifle Association and to politicians who refuse to strengthen gun control laws in America. One of the comedians’ most provocative paintings is that of a dead student sprawled out on an American flag with the caption: “Oh say, can’t you see?!”

The comedian most recently followed-up his controversial Sanders portrait with a new painting of Donald Trump. The artwork features the President rendered as the evil Wicked Witch of the West from “The Wizard of Oz.” Putin is depicted as the Witch’s flying monkeys.

Carrey has been publishing his artwork to his Twitter account, which has become an online gallery for his paintings. IndieWire rounded up 15 of Carrey’s most politically-charged below.
