It was just a matter of time.

An artwork depicting half of Donald Trump's hollow head in Alfred Deakin Place has attracted political graffiti.

Callum Morton's fibreglass sculpture  'Monument#32: Helter Shelter' went on show last week and will be displayed next to the Ballarat Art Gallery until early April.
