A Moldovan-born artist is making waves in the New York art scene with her collection of paintings titled “Trump: Parallel Universe,” depicting the former president in all sorts of scenarios.

Lena Ruseva, 44, is the artist behind the controversial works, which show Donald Trump in several drastically different scenes from history and theology, including Trump as an Egyptian sphinx, a Buddhist monk, and as Michael the archangel casting President Joe Biden from the White House.

“I wanted to play around with childish fantasies,” Ruseva told the New York Post. “Some people hate him and call him racist. Some people love him and they are real fanatics. Everyone has their own picture of Donald Trump.”

“I like Donald Trump as he is a strong person,” Ruseva continued. “It’s easy to criticize. It’s easy to say somebody is wrong or bad, or whatever, but how many people have reached what he reached?”

Ruseva is a green card holder from Moldova who now lives in New Jersey, according to the New York Post. She immigrated to the United States in 2012 and got her start in the art world as a mural painter.

An exhibit featuring Ruseva’s artwork was held at the Metropolitan Republican Club last month. Ruseva also recalled a gallery that canceled her exhibit after it received threats related to the politics of the art. She says she is concerned about encroachments on free speech in the U.S.

“In Russia, you try and post something against government [and] in three to four hours someone will knock on your door. I hope it’s not going to happen here,” she explained.
