  • Actor Jim Carrey has become a political artist and activist on Twitter, amassing over 18 million followers.
  • He regularly tweets politically charged and timely artwork – and has sparked backlash in some cases.
  • A clear style emerged in the art back in November.
  • As Carrey steps back in front of the camera for an upcoming Showtime series, “Kidding,” we revisited his Twitter art catalogue.

Actor Jim Carrey has gained a reputation this year for being an outspoken political artist and activist on Twitter.

He’s stepping back in front of the camera later this month with a new Showtime series, “Kidding,” and was recently profiled for the first time in years in The Hollywood Reporter, but he hasn’t slowed down in his art.

Carrey regularly takes aim at President Donald Trump and his administration, the Republican party, Fox News hosts like Sean Hannity, the National Rifle Association, and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg with his drawings.

And it hasn’t been without its controversies, such as the conservative backlash he faced earlier this year for posting an unflattering image of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, in which he called her “monstrous.”

But when did this new style of art from Carrey begin?

The first public instance appears to be in November. A drawing of former Trump strategist Steve Bannon that Carrey tweeted on November 10, 2017, seems to have set a precedent for the art that would come after it. The art features Bannon’s face with the word “fool” drawn over it.

That same day, Carrey tweeted a drawing of former Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore. Similar to the Bannon piece, Moore’s face had the word “danger” drawn over it.

Carrey has regularly posted drawings since then, almost always inspired by current political events. His Twitter has attracted nearly 18 million followers.

We don’t know what Carrey will say next, or what art he’ll post, but until then, we’ve rounded up a selection of his politically artistic tweets since he debuted the distinct style in November.
