Obama Portraits

Today, the official portraits of Barack and Michelle Obama were unveiled.

President Obama chose one of my favorite contemporary artists, Kehinde Wiley, to paint his portrait. More of Wiley’s work can be seen on his web site, and on Instagram.

Mrs. Obama chose Amy Sherald to paint her portrait. More of her work can be seen on her web site.
