Hooray! An Obama thread, my safe zone for insults, innuendo and tearing down false caricatures!

As to the paintings, they're ugly IMO.

Needs a do-over!  Grin

Unwad your panties Wally.. .   It's inspired by the Book of Judith.  The Biblical account of Judith beheading Holofernes has been the theme of many paintings..

Back in April 2012, Wiley New York magazine wrote a glowing piece covering Wiley and his “global reach.” When Wiley was asked about one of the anti-white paintings in his studio, his response is not only shocking but shows a complete lack of any sort of intellectual depth:

A tall, elegant black woman in a long blue dress—the canvas is enormous, eight feet by ten feet—calmly staring down the viewer. In one hand, she holds a knife. In the other, a cleanly severed brunette female head. “It’s sort of a play on the ‘kill whitey’ thing,” Wiley says. […]


That unabashed bombast has made Wiley a walking superlative: the most successful black artist since Basquiat, possibly the wealthiest painter of his generation, certainly the one who made his name earliest (he was 26 for his first major solo show), a gay man who has become the great painter of machismo for the swag era, a bootstrapper from South Central who talks like a Yale professor (much of the time), a genius self-­promoter who’s managed to have it both ways in an art world that loves having its critical cake and eating the spectacle of it, too, and a crossover phenomenon who is at once the hip-hop world’s favorite fine artist (Spike Lee and LL Cool J own pieces) and the gallery world’s most popular hip-hop ambassador. Not to mention an all-around positive guy.

Racist?

I think we're missing the more obvious issues with these portraits.

1. Barack Obama is sitting in a bowl of salad.

2. This might be hard for the non-discerning artist aficionado to catch, but, if you have a trained eye, you might notice that Michelle Obama is a bizarre inhuman gray color.

3. Michelle's portrait doesn't look like her. One would think that's like, job number one of an official portrait painter. Also, her eyes don't line up right. And it doesn't look like her. And she's gray. And her husband is sitting in a salad.

So why is Wiley famous now? How did a former president of the United States end up tapping this sly con artist to paint his portrait, an incredible honor for any artist? What does it say about the state of the arts and modern American culture that we’re willing to pay a hustler hundreds of thousands of dollars to have underpaid Chinese women paint large anti-white paintings?

Maybe black people are harder to paint portraits of.  Wink

The Obama's certainly didn't seem to want to have a traditional Presidential Portrait.  Barka portrait and Michelle's portrait kind of resemble them, but certainly the artist took a lot of liberty in how he depicted their images when confronted with the reality of how the really look.

Now we learn that of all the artists in the world the Obama's could have chose to do their official portraits they chose an overt racist.  Sad.

I don't believe he would have had any issue provided it was well done. Both of these are just rubbish and should be redone. I've see quite a bit of artwork of the former president and first lady, that were much better done than this. I don't believe Barack or Michelle were as happy with these as they let on. That doesn't even look like Michelle. It looks more like Beyonce, maybe the artist was confused. The one of Barack kind of looks like the artist took still photo, then pasted it on some tacky background wallpaper. Rick was the lefty artist here. I bet he would have trashed both of these, along with the artists to boot.

That pic where the president was dressed in a tan suit would have been better than this. The pics below are much better examples of what should have been presented.

I'm not sure what is stranger, the artists or the portraits.

I just don't get it. Any of it.

The picture of Mrs. O looks amateurish. The picture of him is just...weird. It's emasculating, bizarre and frankly, both seem like an exercise in vanity on behalf of the artist.

But, whatever. They approved it, so if they're OK with unending generations of schoolkids bursting into mocking laughter as they reach the portion of the exhibit where their portraits are hung, then so be it.
