  • Poll: Obama's official portraits unveiled at Smithsonian. Thoughts?

    OK, I know art is tricky. Keeping politics out of it, what do you guys think of the new official portraits of the Obamas that will hang in the Smithsonian?

    Barack's portrait is quite alright, I do not like Michelle's one, at the risk of being rude or misoginist. Maybe the painter screwed up Michelle?

      Form an aesthetic POV I disliked the Michelle piece less, but I didn't like either.

      If I had to chose, I'd beat up the artist of Barack's for wearing that crime of a suit.

        Obama's portrait is okay, I guess. you recognize him.

        Michelle? Not so much.


        But what the fuck about that Barack's background though?

          Shitty portraits for shitty people. Pretty accurate I’d say.

            The artsy was strong with the artist. The O's is particularly ridiculous. Look at the perspective, the chair being almost sucked in by the foliage; it seems as if it was toppled over backwards, but the person on the chair still keeps a posture like he was sitting upright.

            Slap some nice catchy titles on that painting and you'd have made yourself an album cover for some shitty blues music, perhaps interrupted by occasions bouts of dubstep.

            And why does Michelle wear a curtain from the 1970s for a dress?

                That's called Art, you uncultured savage. ; )

                    I'm hoping it's actually a still from the next DC movie and Batman is about to jump in and save him from Poison Ivy.

                      The Obama one looks like one of those free postcards from nineties' cafés, like some intern from an advertising agency was tasked with producing 200 unique cards a week.

                        An art-déco kind of revival.



                        Ah! That's it! I know what it reminds me of! A portrait of Frida Khalo!

                          I'm partial to Picasso's surrealism period. Woman With Hat. It could be Michelle. Or Barack actually.
