President Trump & Republicans in Indiana To Receive Artist’s Donation of Large Trump Portrait in Oils to be auctioned off as a donation to benefit the conservatives in office.
His work has been featured in Time Magazine, New Statesman, New York Times, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, Huffington Post, USA Today and Wall Street Journal. In 2019 he did a TED talk about his artistic endeavors in the desert and for a short time he was the president of the Chamber of Commerce in that desert town, Goldfield, Nevada. The Car Forest quickly become an international oddity celebrated, and was recently featured in Time Magazine.
–“It’s kind of my style to paint the most polarizing face in America because I see that his work is good. And I see that even the conflicts attract attention to the subjects at hand. Our man is a showman with bravado. I hope to inspire diversity of thought. It’s a matter of expressing with courage a defense of my conservative stance amongst the liberal art world. I became the black sheep.”
–artist, Chad Sorg

He helped built & promote the International Car Forest of the Last Church in Goldfield, NV. which is a roadside attraction of 40 cars planted vertically and painted by visiting mural artists. There’s no accounting for taste.
