NOBAMA – I’m going to go against the grain of the social media and say I actually like Barack Obama’s presidential portrait, even if I have no idea WTF. It’s certainly not very presidential. I’m a less of a fan of Michelle Obama’s first lady portrait, or whoever the painting is of, because it doesn’t seem to be Michelle.


Maybe Kehinde Wiley should have painted Mrs Obama holding severed Caucasian head, as he is fond of doing.



A sort of cross between the Biblical “Judith and Holofernes” and the ‘kill whitey’ thing”, as the artist himself says.

P.S. Obligatory:
