It's a painting that has a cartoonish Carlos Danger Anthony Weiner climbing the Empire State Building and taking an inappropriate selfie while helicopters close in.

This is high art, people.

“Free association made me think of the Empire State Building, and then King Kong, the iconic image of him straddling it. And then Weiner sexting, his head tilted and looking a certain way—I just stumbled upon the image as I was sketching. But all I could think about while working on this piece was, ‘Will Weiner still be in the race by the time it runs?’” [The New Yorker]
