Martin Shkreli Unveils ‘Pill 2016’ Piece At Pro-Trump Art Show In NYC

Pharmaceutical entrepreneur and former Turing Pharmaceuticals CEO, Martin Shkreli unveiled his newest art piece titled “Pill 2016” at “Daddy Will Save Us,” Lucian Wintrich’s pro-Trump art show. 

The minimalist piece features a red and blue pill in a glass and wood enclosure. The left-wing press turned Shkreli into a folk devil after he raised the price of AIDS medicine.
