About The Artwork

This painting is a central part of the "Painted Faces" series. I wanted to show Barack Obama from and African perspective. I am a South African. I liked the idea that he has both American and Kenyan heritage. I also like that he chose to be who he is. A leader, and someone that people from around the world can aspire to be like. He is an inspirational figure. The ultimate self-made man. Whatever his political policies have been, I have a great deal of respect for him as a man.

Michael Chomse studied Fine Art at the Michaelis School of Fine Art, University of Cape Town, South Africa, in the late seventies. It was a tumultuous time. He moved from there directly into a career as a documentary filmmaker, seeking the wider audiences that film offered his growing social conscience. Through thirty years of filmmaking, he has honed his visual and storytelling skills to the point where direct contact with paint and canvas is a necessity for his future development. He continues telling stories that have impacted him through the medium of paint on canvas . He is currently working closely with select artists in Europe, Canada and the USA, developing work that reflects a global perspective in the search for a new visual language.
