The current political administration has been a big influence on the art world. Just ask Jim Carrey, the comedian and actor turned activist and artist. The “Ace Ventura” star continues to create searing caricatures of the officials involved in multiple ongoing investigations against President Donald Trump and his administration.

His latest creation, shared on Twitter, is an eerie and menacing portrait of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Styling his name as “Ghouliani,” Carrey captioned the painting: “Finally, a face we can trust!” He’s not wrong; nothing makes a politician look more trustworthy than painting him like he came out of “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.”

The Twitter portrait surfaced mere hours after news broke on Friday that Giuliani would be representing Trump in the current probe into Russian election interference. Interestingly enough, Giuliani himself was already tied to the investigation following some remarks he made during and after the presidential election that suggested his knowledge of it.

Carrey’s older creations include “Sean Manatee,” an unflattering manatee-human hybrid painting of Fox News host Sean Hannity, and a portrait of the president that speaks for itself. With another few years left before reelection, at least we can count on plenty more political art.

Beyond the art world, Carrey will next be seen in the upcoming Showtime series “Kidding,” to be directed by his old “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” collaborator Michel Gondry.
