Painting: Oil on Canvas.
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.
