Like all Presidents, Barrack Obama unveiled his presidential portrait Monday, February 12th, 2018. Normally presidential portraits are grand depictions of a president in a traditional style. President Obama decided to go along a different path. Obama commissioned Kehinde Wiley to do the portrait. His choice reflects his world view and his book “Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance” in which Obama wrote:
“My identity might begin with the fact of my race, but it didn’t, couldn’t end there. At least that’s what I would choose to believe.”
Obama’s father’s dreams are the reason he choose this artist to do his portrait.
He sees himself as a reflection of everything Wiley has painted like Wiley’s 2012 portrait of black women holding a knife and the severed head of a young blond white girl. This painting reminded me of photos of Australian terrorist Khaled Sharrouf, 36, and sons Zarqawi, 11, and Abdullah, 12, who joined ISIS and were once pictured holding a severed head. It also brought to mind the photo of former comedian Kathy Griffin holding the severed head of President Trump.
Obama also views himself as a king rather than a president with limited executive powers as depicted in the below painting by Wiley done in 2005 titled “Ice T” copied from the painting of “Napoleon on his Imperial throne” (1806) by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres.
In a Daily Caller article titled “Obama’s Painter Has Long ‘Predatory,’ ‘Perverse’ History Of Sneaking Sperm Into Paintings” investigative reporter Ethan Barton wrote:
The artist who painted former President Barack Obama for the National Portrait Gallery in the Smithsonian has a history of including depictions of sperm in his work, and has been described as “predatory” and “perverse” by The Village Voice.
Kehinde Wiley is well-known for recreating famous paintings, but replacing the featured white person – often a noble or general – with a young black man. Wiley often met the men on the street, brought them into his studio, and had them pick a work to be painted into, the famously left-wing Village Voice reported in March 2015.
Wiley “lures young men into his studio with the promise of power and glamour,” writer and art critic Jessica Dawson wrote. She called the behavior “predatory” and “perverse.”
Dawson also points out the sexuality in several of his pieces and highlights that they often include sperm. Wiley’s rendition of “St. Andrew,” [above] for example, shows a black man grinding “his crotch against a wooden cross” with “free-floating spermatozoa” painted on the canvas, Dawson wrote.
Wiley also has a studio in China. According to a 2012 column titled “6. Outsource to China: While riffing on the Western canon. Kehinde Wiley’s global reach” New York Magazine Christopher Beam reports:
In a soaring studio on the outskirts of Beijing, where Kehinde Wiley came in 2006 to set up the first of his several global production outposts, the 35-year-old painter is showing off his women.

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. The Beijing studio began as a lark: After visiting an artist friend there and liking what he saw, he and a couple of his New York staffers flew out, rented some space, and started painting, “sort of like a retreat,” he says. One thing led to another—“another” being a five-year relationship with a Chinese D.J.—and eventually the Beijing studio became the main production hub as well as his second home. He recently bought an apartment overlooking Chaoyang Park, complete with a live-in maid and two miniature greyhounds, Xiaohui, or “Little Gray,” and Celie, named after the character in The Color Purple.
Whatfinger News reports:
Obama Presidential Portrait: Well folks he hired an anti-white racist as his artist. The media ignored that fact other than Fox. Think of it this way: Had Trump hired an artist to create a portrait, and that artist was known for works depicting the severed heads of blacks by white people, we would not hear the end of it for many many months. Think about that as yet another indication of the racism of the left and media. With that in mind – you can’t make what our side found out about the portrait.
You see Wiley’s works are just copies, shadows, of painting by the great masters of Western civilization.
Obama’s legacy is, like his life and Wiley’s portrait, a copy of the great leaders of Western civilization. Obama never achieved what the great leaders of America have. He never had any willingness to make America great. He never had any desire to make America safe. Obama never had any intention to make America united as one people, one culture under God.
