Paintings Of Barack And Michelle Obama Unveiled At Portrait Gallery



Quote:
Brand new portraits of former president Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama — wearing matching calm, strong expressions — were revealed on Monday at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.

Kehinde Wiley painted Barack Obama sitting in a chair, elbows in his knees, leaning forward with an intense expression. The background, typical of a Wiley painting, is a riotous pattern of intense greens.

"Pretty sharp," Obama said with a grin.

Barack's is pretty damn good. Michelle's makes her look like she's 30 years old, not very accurate.

Must be one of the daughters because that is not Michelle Obama.

Michelle's looks like a paint by number water color.

Barack's portrait is very close, although the emphasis on the pursed lips gives it somewhat of a Brian Stokes Mitchell feel.

Michelle's portrait is very nice, but it'd definitely not her or her daughters. Whoever it is, she's kinda cute. The Smithsonian should demand a refund for that one.

Barack Obama praised Baltimore-based artist Amy Sherald “for so spectacularly capturing the grace and beauty and intelligence and charm and hotness of the woman I love,”
Wouldn't a painting that looked like her do that? He should be sleeping on the couch.

Same guy that designed the library probably did Michelle's painting.

Obama's looks fine except for embedding him in a wall of vines. What's that supposed to mean?

gneiss told me they are vines native to the middle east. It's Obama/New World Order giving subtle clues as where he was actually born. I believe it.

The former president's portrait is awful, but just as when he was in office his people are claiming it is the bushes fault.

Anyone else bothered by this artist's portfolio? Specifically the pictures of a proud Black women swinging the severed head of a white lady around by the hair? It's quite edgy stuff.

Obama looks to be featured in a large salad, and this Michele is the wife he wishes he had, not his reality - Wayne Brady in drag.

Am I the only one that thinks Barack's hands seem to be a bit over sized? Wonder if this had anything to do with all the discussions about Trump' hands? Those painting have to be some of the worst paintings I have ever seen, then I realized look at the subject matter he had to start with.

No, because not all of us get offended and bothered so easily.

Well, maybe the former president is paying homage to his time in Chicago by posing in front of the left field wall at Wrigley.

Then ignore it and stop finding ways to be outraged and offended

I know it's a hard concept for you PJW's to comprehend.

Come to think of it, Michele's painting is no slouch. The figure in her portrait could have been a character in a Seinfeld episode.

Anyway, that's all irrelevant. The fact of the matter is, Barack's image looks very much like him; Michele's looks nothing like her.
