The High Art of Mitt Romney [NSFW]

Dan Lacey’s work has been floating around the Internet since the last presidential election, when Gawker’s Hamilton Nolan introduced his bizarre — and at that point, primarily pancake-themed political art — to the world. Before everyone hits the polls tomorrow, we thought it would be a good time to round up some of Lacey’s latest pieces, what we’re dubbing the definitive “High Art of Mitt Romney.” Even if these NSFW paintings don’t end up in the Met one day, we have a feeling that they may work perfectly as your Facebook profile pic!

Mitt Romney In The Nude

eBay price = $147.50

“The Mitt Romney nude is more an expression of personal artistic issues than any sort of political statement,” Lacey told Daily Intel over email. “So the Romney is basically a self-portrait. I’m nearly an ex-Christian but have some personal faith remaining but expect nothing — Mitt is certainly coming from a unique place on that issue as well. From a purely self-promotional standpoint he needs to reveal himself to become more likeable, but how does he do that without offending? He’s been blessed by God but others cannot be unless they accept.”

Mitt Romney With Binders Full Of Women

eBay price = $433

According to ArtInfo Lacey put this up for sale only hours after Romney made his “binders full of women” remark during the second presidential debate.

Mitt Romney Hurricane Sandy Mormon Prophecy Bloody Moon

eBay price = $135.83

“In my painting, Mitt Romney signals his harmony with the will of God concerning Hurricane Sandy as it threatens the east coast of the United States,” Lacey explains. “The blood drenched moon of Mormon prophecy also appears. Are these the final days, or the beginning of a new era?”

Romney Trump Obama Rolling Stone Comment Bullshitter

eBay price = $26

As Lacey explains, “This painting also features presumptive Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump wearing a bull costume aka Sacha Baren Cohen’s Bruno.”

Mitt Romney As Aranea Serket From Homestuck / MS Paint Adventures

eBay price = $98

For those who are like us and don’t know who Aranea Serket is, Lacey describes this as “a painting of GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney as pre-scratch troll Aranea Serket from the Andrew Hussie online webcomic Homestuck, as featured on MS Paint Adventures.” So now you get it?

Nude Obama Romney Horses and Bayonets

eBay price = $76.99

The horse is Ann Romney’s Rafalca, and the unicorn is part of an ongoing series featuring a nude President Obama riding a unicorn — arguably Lacey’s greatest success to date.

A Painting of Mitt Romney Being Mitt Shamed

eBay price = $50

Lacey tells us that this one was inspired by the Pet Shaming viral trend from a few months ago, but even if you’re not familiar with the meme, the message is loud and clear.

A Flock of Romney

eBay price = $108.49

“A portrait painting of GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney with ’80s era A Flock Of Seagulls hair,” Lacey writes. “This was painted in response to Barack Obama’s 1980s reference during the final Presidential debate.” Genius.

Bonus: Lacey actually made two versions of this portrait and then turned both portraits into a sort of horrifying .gif
