    The artist believes that the decision to ban his Instagram account was politically motivated.

    Instagram blocked the account of a graffiti artist known as Lushsux, who posted pictures of his work online. One of his works was a caricature of Hillary Clinton in a revealing bathing suit with a wad of dollar bills sticking out.

    Anyone know how to get an account reactivated?

    Lushsux posted a quote belonging to the local Maribyrnong Council chief executive Stephen Wall, saying that the graffiti was offensive merely because it depicted a near naked woman and the move had nothing to do with the fact that it was an image of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

    Pathetic.

    Instagram’s administration did not provide any comment on its actions, however the artist is certain that it was politically motivated.

    Repost and share this if you have been following my work and hate censorship

    Lushsux has created a second page since then, and reposted his graffiti. His work includes Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Melania Trump and Bernie Sanders. His latest works seem to be taunting Instagram with provocative images with captions such as ‘I don't know if I made it more offensive or less?’
