Can we just talk "out of character" here for a second and agree that this is just an objectively bad portrait? Seriously it's like something a high school senior would make for his art final and get a C on... yet everyone is pretending it's such a great and "sharp" picture. I feel like I'm listening to a mother show me and a bunch of other parents her kid's finger painting on the fridge and everyone is just nodding respectfully and congratulating the mom for having such a "talented" kid but I just want to scream and say "IT FUCKING SUCKS YOUR KID IS A HACK" yet no one is saying it about this portrait of Obama yet I feel like if just one person stood up and said "ENOUGH. THIS IS TERRIBLE STOP PRETENDING TO LIKE IT" then millions of others would agree.

Or is that just me? I don't think it's a good portrait at all. Compare it to JFK's... it's like comparing a "Fifty Shades of Gray" to The Odyssey. Seriously.

It's not a good picture. I mean it just looks exactly as you described. A beginner painting student that knows as much about color schemes and color theory as I do. Don't get me won't, Obama looks damn near spot on. But the ivy just looks bad in the background. And the ivy itself is done pretty well. It's just, you look at it and you think a toddler decided he wanted leaves in the background.
From what I've read it's not the portrait going in the White House.
I'm no fan of Obama but if we're going to hang his portrait in the White House it should be a good one.

I like that it has Obama outside, while all other presidents' portraits are inside. It gives the sense that he was more of a field nigger than a house nigger.
>>
>>160371513
Most likely Obama's face was done from a photograph on an overhead projector. The artist traced it.

I mean at least it looks like obama, this shit is fucking TERRIBLE. You can pretend like it’s good, you can claim that “that was the stylistic approach,” this is her M.O, I call bullshit. This portrait does not even resemble Michelle.

Painter fag here who graduated from the Chelsea School of Art.

It's shit. Pure. Fucking. Shit.

When I first saw it, I thought, someone on 4chan could do better. The artistry is poor. Even for a piece that uses Photoshop and projection, I've seen better work in my class.

Then saw that a nigger painted it, and it all made sense.

I didn’t like it at first, but it’s growing on me.

Those are representations of real flowers involving Obama’s worldly life story. It’s actually worth zooming into to look at, it’s very classical internet.

It’s very obnoxious, but who cares? The racists would laugh at any portrait he would do. It’s post modern in a very deep way. 2017 was the beginning of a new era. Only time will tell how it will hold up

You know, I wouldn't object to Obama having his picture in a garden. If he wants to stand out, you can still look presidential in a garden.

His pose isn't terrible, though I'd have picked a different position for his hands. I'd prefer he be standing, but FDR was sitting (i'm aware he had polio)

>>
>>160373333
I describe it as pretty weak. The lighting could be softer, as the warmth is too emphasized. It makes me think of some generic instagram photo with boosted saturation. Most likely to draw focus on Obama. It makes him feel fake.
The background is what really destroys the portrait for me. It fights with the subject matter which is Obama himself. The colors are very warm, and as such feels out of balance.
Compared to the other portraits dpnr this is definitely the worst.
And don't get me started on Michelle's portrait. That shit looks like a drawing unfinished in Photoshop.

What's wrong with your complexion? It looks like she's made out of stone. These portraits are just awful. I see better stuff from anime artists on Danbooru every time I go thair to fap.

The most ridiculous part is there has to have been at least one nigger artist in America who could do decent portraits. They only wanted a chocolate man to do it because of race politics.

> Copy-pasted background on a fucking once-in-a-lifetime presidential portrait of the artist's first black president (apparently this is not sufficient motivation for the black artist)
> perspective is all wrong; no sense of the floor and whatever the ivy is hanging off of, especially near his feet and at the feet of the chair
> SPERM
> hands don't look right
> either upper-arm proportions are off, or shoulder angle is wrong, making Obama's right upper arm look weirdly long
> no apparent lean in back, so either he is arching his back like an instathot or his torso is four inches closer to his knees than it should be
> garish coloration

And I don't have more than the most fucking casual of fucking casual appreciation for portraits. I didn't vote for him but shit, he was president for eight years, and that "HOPE" blue-and-white portrait is better than this.

Only thing I can think of is that this is a final troll job by Obama; like the MLK bust, it's a black thing, so all future white presidents will have to say nice things about it, hang it somewhere prominent, and look at it every day.

http://www.blouinartinfo.com/news/story/804576/kehinde-wileys-dilemma-how-the-artist-painted-himself-into-a-corner-with-his-new-works

>Wiley’s easily graspable schtick has allowed him to find a place in popular culture — the press-release talking point that “An Economy of Grace” represents his first series devoted to women is a bit misleading, since he has, in fact, previously painted Salt-N-Pepa for the VH1 Hip-Hop Awards, or that he has just done the album art for Santigold. It also allows him to churn out product. These days, his actual paintings are created by teams of assistants in China. He’s secretive about how much of the work he himself does: “I don’t want you to know every aspect of where my hand starts and ends,” he told New York magazine recently.

Obama's presidential portrait is the result of outsourced chinks. Truly I can think of no greater symbol of his presidency.

What you're saying here strikes at the heart of why these people will not win. It is more important than race, gender, power or any of that tripe.
Anglo truth-telling is such a cornerstone of American culture that the entire country has fatigued from sustaining and entertaining bald-faced lie after bald-face lie. Americans will tolerate all manner or stupidity in the interest of honoring our live-and-let-live notions of liberal permissiveness. So long as we're permitted dissent. We've only had about 6 years of this Soviet-style "nod and agree" shit and it'll be a miracle if it doesn't end in a bloodbath.

More than anything, we're just done with going along to get along with liars and hustlers.

My first impression was that I didn't like it, because I was hoping for a more traditional portrait, but I honestly do like it now that I've looked at it more.

Really good post. It will be a miracle if it doesn’t end in a bloodbath because the Left has become unhinged and totally divorced from reality. Maybe they were always that way, but it’s gotten to a point that I’m not sure we can coexist.
As for the painting, it’s crap but then I admire how shitty it is, especially for the memes it’s generated.

Playing this game with you. I’ve seen good art. I’ve seen great art. I’ve seen art that is, in my opinion, perfect.

This art is only respected as art because the artist calls it that and wealthy people believe it. The reality is this guy has about the same ability as a street artist and slightly more ability than Cy Twombly.

The reality is, considering there have only been 45 presidents of the most powerful country in the world and only one official portrait per President, the quality of this portrait is truly bad. Completely embarrassing and undignified considering the nature of the post.

The only way one could find quality in the making this the official portrait would be if the artist said that it was painted to intentionally mirror the ineptitude of Barak Obama as President of the United States.

You obviously hate this because it's of Obama. This artist is actually quite talented, especially compared with most of his peers in the contemporary art world. I am an artist myself and can say that this man has admirable skill. I know that I am better, but I can at least recognize the ability and effort behind this painting and set aside the fact that it's of a president that I don't like. Grow up and have some respect friend, this is no way to get anyone on our side.

The near-photorealistic shoes compare favorably with, e.g., the pearl in pic attached. Likewise the fabric of the suit is remarkable in its textures, and surely more delicately rendered than the rather clumsy folds of the girl's turban (see attached).

There is a pic from last night, might be a rap video or something, and it was obviously done in 10 minutes but it looks like that "could" have been the artists intentions.

That is what makes the painting so pathetic to me.

The people that think it’s crazy are the ones that haven’t looked into this guy’s history. When Hannity put up that article all the liberals jumped to say “conspiracy,” because it honestly does sound so fucking fantastical and unbelievable, if all I heard was “people are claiming there’s a sperm on Obama’s head,” I’d probably have the same reaction.
I took the time to research though and if you take literally 10 minutes to read up on this dude you’ll find that there is way more evidence pointing to it likely being there as opposed to not.
Unfortunately I’m sure if you search “artists name sperm,” the search results have since been diluted by “CRAZY RIGHTWING OBAMA SPERMHEAD CONSPIRACY LOL,” I archived a lot of shit though thankfully.
>>
>>160376068

>Why couldn't he just hire someone who knew what the fuck they were doing?

Because he and Michael were like "let's use someone who is underrepresented, regardless of their talent, even if all they've done is give a speech or something they'll do a good job at something they're totally unqualified to do." And Barrack was like "that didn't work out last time." And Michael was like "my Mom's coming, she needs to know I support the cause, it'll look good I promise."

And now we have a presidential portrait with a sperm vein and no thumbs.

Sperm imagery is a symbol of masculine power in Wiley's art.

However, it seems that never before has Wiley placed the sacred sperm symbol on the *face* of one of his subjects.

The placement of the sperm emblem on Obama's forehead signifies a kind of royal power, not unlike the serpent goddess, Uraeus, seen on the crowns of ancient Egyptian kings and queens, mostly famously depicted in Cleopatra's crown.
