Portland artist uses menstrual blood to paint portrait of Donald Trump

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A Portland artist is sending one bold message to Donald Trump and she's using her own blood to do it. 

Sarah Levy painted a portrait of the Republican presidential candidate using her menstrual blood.

Levy said it’s all in response to a controversial comment trump made about FOX debate moderator Megyn Kelly.

Following the Republican presidential debate on Fox News, Trump said of moderator Kelly: "You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever."

Levy says if Trump thinks he can bring up a woman's period to insult their intelligence, he should think again.

“Women are totally capable when they are on their period and that shouldn’t even be an issue,” said Levy. "That just needs to be called out, especially when he’s running to be the President of the United States.”

“I was on my period a month ago and I had this idea, and I thought that’s so obvious, someone must have done this already. But, then I had to wait a month to bleed again and then I did it,” Levy added.

The Portland artist used her own blood to paint Trump's face and that famous swooped hair.

"I’m just sort of impressed with myself I guess, it looks okay,” said Levy.

Levy is now selling prints of the portrait she calls “Whatever" on Etsy. She said she plans to give the proceeds to immigrant rights organizations.

Donald Trump’s campaign couldn't be reached for comment on the portrait by the time this story was published.

Levy says she's already making plans to make more paintings like this.
