Artist Uses Tractor to Write Get Well Message to Hillary Clinton in Field: 'You Must, You Can'


An Italian artist has taken news of Hillary Clinton’s recent health scare pretty hard, sending her a "get well" message for the ages – a portrait of the candidate and with the words, “You Must, You Can” plowed in a field.

Artist Dario Gambarin used his skills to make the portrait in a field near Verona, Italy, after her campaign said the Democratic presidential candidate had been suffering from pneumonia since Friday.

"I heard she was ill and I felt it was right to wish her well," he told InsideEdition.com. "For me, politics is like a sport and she is the team I like. When I saw she was getting flak for being sick, I wanted to draw more attention to her getting better." 

He added: "This art is very difficult because it all depends on the weather, the terrain and ecology." 

He doesn't really prepare for the artwork he creates in the field. He just gets on his tractor and begins to go to work with an idea in mind. 

Gambarin took to his tractor and began carving the message that can be seen from the air.

Gambarin said in a statement: "It's a way to say to Hillary, you have to keep going because you can become the first female president of the U.S."

The Clinton portrait took 8 hours to create. The finished product measured more than 524 feet by 426 feet by 459 feet.

The artist has done land art like this before. In 2013, he created a portrait of former South African President Nelson Mandela after the former South African president's death.

He has also recreated the iconic expressionist artist Edvard Munch’s “Scream” painting. 

The artist says he has been doing this for 10 years and his first was a portrait of President Obama with the message: “The Hope Is in the Land.”

He says he started doing this for a "new challenge" and wanted to use "natural resources" to make his art and "be outside more." 

Gambarin said: "I wanted to do this and wanted to do something different."
