Just Plain Goofy…

The “official portraits” of former President Barack Obama and former First-lady Michelle Obama have been revealed.  The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery unveiled its commissioned portraits on Monday.  Barack Obama image, painted by artist Kehinde Wiley, shows him seated in front of an ivy backdrop, while Michelle Obama was painted by Amy Sherald in a pale blue setting.

Art is subjective.  The portraits are just plain goofy.

Even the furthest-left liberals intrinsically know those portraits are goofy.  That’s what is funny about them.  The loons begin a process of high-brow philosophical discussion about the bold dynamic within the medium, the inherent nuance, invisible overtures, fascinating artistic meaning and deeply elevated intellectual stimulation…

And there it is; amid the subtle head-tilts, high-minded discussion depth and shallow chin-clutched adoration we see a glorious display of a naked emperor convincing a particular mind how his robe is such magnificent splendor.

The portraits are goofy.

Perfect.

      I thought the same thing but in retrospect, when Generation Z and their kids go to visit the Smithsonian or view the Presidential Portraits online, they will realize how low our country fell during this man’s 8 miserable years. Just imagine what our Lion’s Portrait will look like when his 8 years are over. The difference in those 16 years will be seen by those two Presidential Portraits!

      so interesting that this evil has no roots in our country
      no family at all and how interesting that his grandparents in hawaii died shortly after his entering the WH
      he is a coup and a muslim and wants to destroy our country
      he is a traitor and evil and works for satan/illuminati

    This is hysterical. Some of the leaves resemble three-leaved poison ivy. And the flowers? The left side of his bottom has to be on the arm of the chair. There is a parody of it going around on facebook: Obama is hiding in the leaves, peeking out with binoculars at Trump, who is giving Obama his middle finger. Wish I could find a way to paste it here.

    Obama looks like a little kid who asked to be excused and his request was refused. Michell’s portrait seems to be about the dress fabric and, after being fed a lemon, her face put over the dress. They certainly are goofy.

    From the choice of artists, to the ridiculous “likenesses” these portraits are nothing more than a big FU to all of us.

    Tasteless they are, but this is intentional.

      You’re absolutely correct… I haven’t commented on the portraits, been reading other’s comments.

      It is being said that the “artist” didn’t even paint the portrait, that a group of Chinese women do most of his work for him.

      Kehinde Wiley is a joke, a farce, and a liar. But he’s gay and black so I guess he gets a pass. Barack Obama CHOSE this guy to do the artwork. Unbelievable. It’s almost as if Hussein is trying to p$#% us off.

      “For his part, Obama claimed that “what I was always struck by when I saw [Wiley’s] portraits was the degree to which they challenged our ideas of power and privilege.”

      Yeah, that must be it. A black woman holding a dead white person’s head is…challenging.

      He has two right hands… from the Hadith, not the Quran. The Quran is the ‘holy’ book, the Hadith is volumes of the books of law. In the Hadith it is written that Allah has two right hands http://pureislaam.com/2016/03/20/allahs-two-hands/

      You can perceive patterns in the floral part… as in ‘repeated patterns’ so that ‘painting’ is not involved, it’s more as you find in a carpet or in linens… patterns. More of a ‘print’ than a ‘portrait’.

      There’s huge symbolism in the portrait. First of all, the chair is atop a garden of flowers, not ivy, but flowers…

      there’s a lot of things folks have found when the image is inverted, enlarged…

      It’s sick.

Michael is certainly not in this painting and the greyness makes whoever this female is a zombie, and the garment he/she/it wears is so farcical I can’t help laughing uproariously every time I see whoever the female is in that voluminous dress which, however, it typical of Michael’s lack of taste in outfits, and those long arms remind me of some apes.

    The presidential portrait: Weird, but fitting for a narcissist-in-chief

    Demonstrating once again a serious deficit of seriousness, almost alone in taking himself seriously, as most people won’t any longer, Barack Hussein Obama unveiled two portraits of himself and his wife.

    One cannot help but be reminded that these two works of industrial design barely adequate for a Hallmark card embarrassingly look like cartoons painted on high-grade canvas. Wholly improperly conceived as either serious art or dignified enough to be hung along the row of presidents similarly honored in the corridors of the White House, not only do we see in these mind-numbingly tasteless works a deficit in seriousness, but we see an absence of cultural depth.

    Did The Bigot Who “Painted” Obama’s Portrait Stick A Giant Sperm On His Forehead?

    http://ibankcoin.com/zeropointnow/2018/02/13/did-the-bigot-who-painted-obamas-portrait-stick-a-giant-sperm-on-his-forehead

    Excerpts without the article’s many supporting images:

    Upon closer inspection, the portrait which was “Painted” by Kehinde Wiley who has a history of featuring sperm in his various works, Obama’s forehead was the latest recipient of Wiley’s handiwork – as the former President bears what appears to be a giant sperm on his head.

    Indeed, proof of Wiley’s penchant for inserting sperm can be seen by nearly a decade of tweets referencing the lil’ swimmers.

    In addition to all the sperm, Wiley apparently loves depicting violence against whites – and is on record saying the below “art” is “sort of a play on the “kill whitey” thing”.

    To top it off, as the Gateway Pundit‘s Lucian Wintrich notes – Wiley uses Chinese labor to Photoshop his paintings. “Producing work in China cuts costs, but not as much as it used to, Wiley says. These days in Beijing he employs anywhere from four to ten workers, depending on the urgency, plus a studio manager, the American artist Ain Cocke.”

    I can’t decide.
    The artist is known for producing Black Male on Black Male erotica homosexual art.
    With sperm strewn in the background.
    He is also known for producing Black Female decapitating White Female art.
    President Obama knew this history and chose this artist to produce his Presidential Portrait for the Smithsonian over 1 year ago.
    The portrait of President Obama has:
    A sperm on his left temple.
    A bruise with sub-epithelial hemorrhage around the left side of his mouth.
    A large left hand with an extra digit (not sure if it is an extra finger or a thumb): an extra finger in art means movement…he is left handed…let you think about that…an extra thumb is actually worse…it indicates two right hands…
    The green background is the color of Islam…
    The flower blossoms are the color of the lgbtq nation…or the color of his history from birth to Indonesia to Hawaii…
    So, is this portrait President Obama’s “Coming Out of the Closet” Statement or is it his last “FU” to America?

      “On Monday, TIME reported that “at age 12, in 1989, Wiley was one of 50 American children who went to live in Russia at the Center for U.S./U.S.S.R. Initiatives. There, he studied art and Russian language. He eventually attended the San Francisco Art Institute, and studied art in graduate school at Yale.”

      “Russia” was then the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR).”
