  • “Naked Trump” at Julien’s October Auction

    Naked Trump.

    Naked Trump.

    Selling Donald Trump fully clothed is a bit of task, even if today some of his best friends are apparently Mexicans.  The task of selling him in reproduction unclothed has fallen to Julien’s Auctions in Hollywood.

    Their October 22 street art and contemporary art auction will feature a Naked Trump statue along with works by Banksy, Keith Haring, Jean Michel Basquiat and others. Estimated at $10,000-20,000 the statue is by anonymous street art collective INDECLINE and it has appeared on the 4600 block at Hollywood Boulevard. It is entitled “The Emperor has no Balls”. Proceeds from the sale will benefit the National Immigration Forum.

    “Naked Trump” is one of a series of which caused a commotion nationwide recently when appearing unannounced in public spaces in New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Cleveland and Los Angeles. This is the only remaining example not confiscated or destroyed.  The auction will be live and online.

    UPDATE: IT SOLD FOR $22,000
