The “Artist” Behind Obama’s Portrait Is a Sick Puppy (and You Can Tell Him I Said That)

Tuesday, February 13, 2018 13:43
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The “artist” responsible for that cartoonish portrait of former President Barack Obama, sitting in foliage, is a violent, misogynistic, hateful splotch of racist scum.

Somebody please tell him I said so.

His name is Kehinde Wiley, and among his other claims to fame – as far as his ridiculous “art” is concerned – are portraits of black women (with the same nonsensical floral backgrounds), holding the severed heads of white women.


Well, I just told you why. He’s a violent, misogynistic, hateful racist. He’s using the cover of “art,” to try and put a creative spin on the ugly, vile seed of inhumanity that rests in his heart.

From the Washington Examiner:

In an interview with New York Magazine, Wiley said one of the controversial portraits was based on a stay-at-home mom he found at the mall and the woman’s head she was holding was based on one of his assistants.

He must have really hated his assistant. I hope somebody has done a welfare check on her. Do we know where she is?

“It’s sort of a play on the ‘kill whitey’ thing,” Wiley told NYMag.

What does that even mean? You have pictures of the severed heads of white women. It’s not “sort of a play on.” It’s telegraphing.

The Obama portrait will go in the America’s Presidents exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery, in Washington, D.C. It is guaranteed to be the stand-out ugliest piece there.

I get that Obama is gone now, and he can be as racist and antagonistic as he wants, with no concerns for what happens next, but this is beyond the pale, even for him.
