This week the official portrait of President Obama was unveiled at the National Portrait Gallary. The portraits of the 44th president and the first lady were pained by openly gay black artist gay artist Kehinde Wiley.
Given the fact that this artist has painted portraits of other famous figures such as the Notorious B.I.G., LL Cool J, Big Daddy Kane, Ice T, and Michael Jackson I was surprised by the quality of this particular work.
Not surprised in a good way…
The portrait has been subject to a litany of memes on social media. Here are just a few for your viewing please.
