Obama's Portraits -- Extra Fingers for Flipping People Off and Decapitated White Women

Obama's official portrait artist decided to give him an extra middle finger to flip off the middle class with.

Or did The Artist instead paint Obama's hands backwards, like a Rakshasa?



He also chose an artist who is very interested in painting black people brandishing the severed heads of white women.

The artist himself admits it's "a sort of a play on the 'Kill Whitey' thing."

Isn't that special.

He can't paint thumbs.
Also the background is photoshopped.
And Obama has a sperm cell on the right side of his head.

No no no, it's an homage to paintings of the bible story of Judith and Holofernes. The fact that it's black women decapitating white women is merely artistic license.

(Are you buying that?)

20 There's a line repeated in the Art Thread: "Hands cost extra" because it seems to be an issue with paid portraits - the artist not getting the hands right.


I have no idea how that fits in with the TFG portrait, only that....well, may be an indication of the artist's skill?

I bet the Obamas wish they could pull a lady Churchill and burn the darn things, but in their hubris they chose "woke" artists. To burn their work would be a hate crime. Hahahahaha.

77 I can understand the hand thing. The artist put just a bit too much definition into the fleshy part of Obama's hand, almost like Obama was pressing down on his leg too hard and making the heel of his hand (the Mount of Luna) bulge outward. In paint, this comes out looking like a sixth finger. And once you've seen it you can't UNsee it.


What is it with leftists and extra limbs and digits? First we had Reese Witherspoon's extra leg and Oprah Winfrey's extra hand, now Obama's extra finger.

133 I find it kind of interesting that the artist who painted TFG's portrait explores classical structures and subjects in his art, like Judith beheading Holofornes, but with a modern angle, like recasting the roles. I'd honestly be interested in learning more about his work... if he didn't add that whole "kill Whitey" flavor to his art. That kind of thing pretty much says "My work isn't for you, cracker."

140 Rembrandt would paint hands of portrait subjects slightly larger than their actual proportions, thus accentuating them, forcing the viewer to focus on them, to pause and look them over more closely. One art history expert thinks this is because Rembrandt was showing off, demonstrating that hands--so difficult to execute artistically--were child's play to a master such as himself. He was essentially signaling his superiority to other artists.

There is a brashness to Rembrandt's works, even in his maturity. I tend to think that observation is true.

Insofar as Obama's artist is concerned: utter shit. And the irony here? This clown is taught in art schools. He's considered a big deal. This inordinate critical praise and academic support for such substandard, amateurish work can only be due--in my view--to the artist as a POC provocateur. It can't be--and isn't--because of his talent.

Posted by: JackStraw at February 13, 2018 03:06 PM (/tuJf)

144 No, he didn't paint the hand on backwards. Look at the wrist. And I think Obama has a great fat hypothenar eminenence that bulges out when he puts his hand down. So no, I don't think it's an extra finger. What is wrong is the length of the hands and arms, which are exaggerated.

That plus the background gimmick.

The funniest thing about that is the Obama's forgot a lesson that just about every other ruler for the past 2,000 years has figured out - when you choose an artist to create a depiction of yourself that will be remembered for all time, there's a reason you want to pick the BEST, not pick someone who's only real talent is punching political buttons.

Utah mom upset after school tells 6th graders they can`t say no when asked to dance

WEST HAVEN, Utah -- When Natalie Richard’s sixth-grade daughter told her she couldn’t say “no” if a boy asked her to dance at Kanesville Elementary’s Valentine’s Day dance, she didn’t believe it at first.

8220;Oh no, no honey," Richard said of her reply. "You guys are misunderstanding again. That’s not how it is."

However, after speaking to her daughter’s teacher, she realized the statement was accurate.

“The teacher said she can’t. She has to say yes. She has to accept and I said, 'Excuse me,” Richard tells Fox 13.

258 Defenders of that artist say that he was re-interpreting classic paintings. The severed heads thing is a reference to paintings of Judith and Holofernes.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judith_beheading_Holofernes

So let's examine the theme here. Holofernes was a general, leading an army to destroy Judith's home and kill everyone. She killed him and thus saved her home. Now this artist has made this a racial thing: the hero is now black, the villain is now a white woman. If there is symbolism here, it's pretty clear: whites are going to destroy blacks, and a hero should kill some white person to stop the destruction?

On the maxim "never attribute to malice what is adequately explained by incompetence", I think maybe this isn't an explicit call to violence. I think the artist started out saying "I'll paint new versions of classic painting, swapping in black people" and the just said "while I'm at it, I'll make the severed head that of a woman. And I'll paint pretty flowers! And the heroine will wear a blue fashion gown!" I think the artist could have made these decisions randomly, not thinking about them much. Then pretentious over-educated people can read deep meanings from these arbitrary decisions.

So you have your choice: the artist is guilty of weaving hateful imagery on purpose, or the artist is just a shallow hack making random decisions. Neither one is really flattering to the artist.

Obama chose this guy because of course he did. Obama is a narcissist, and he couldn't have an ordinary portrait; his has to be special and edgy and different, because he's so special.

Well put. The "finger" is so blobby and unformed, as opposed to all of the other *fingers* which have a knuckle and definition.

As somebody who has drawn a thing or two I know the feeling when you mess up a contour. I was thinking of a situation of pressing a palm into something--or possibly the stress put on a hand when you play with a ring on your ring finger. But it's probably a the fat of the palm that received too much space and definition.

Furthermore, you can't tuck your little finger under your other fingers to hide it to that extent--especially from *that* angle.

There are all sorts of features which make it look less like a finger than a drafting mistake.

301 It depresses me that Wiley isn't just a successful artist, but one of the most successful artists of his generation. There is no THERE there. It's busyness and distraction. I'm not saying art can't be busy, but I like to take my time LOOKING at a painting and really absorbing the details. My eyes would deflate if I spent more than five minutes staring at this mess.


Hieronymus Bosch could do busy art. Bosch's art is actually INTERESTING to look at, with lots of unique details.

I don't see a thumb. It looks to me like the artist was trying to show
the way the hand sorta deforms when you push it against something. If
his left hand were pushed against the top of his right forearm, then the
"meaty" bit of the palm would be pushed out to the side a little bit
(try making that pose with your arms yourself and you'll see what I
mean)



The artist screwed up by over-exaggerating it i think, or maybe JEF just has flabbly floppy hands.

There are a couple ways to 'cheat' in initial sketches. You take a photograph, print it out, insert it into an opaque projector, turn lights out, and trace away. Fairly safe.

The other way is by using a slide projector. The only problem there is you might insert the slide the wrong way. Which is what seems to have happened with the left hand. It's bass ackwards. Thumb should be at top, not at bottom.

Use your own hands to figure it out.

THIS. The likeness of Barky is actually pretty good, and a little deviation from strict photorealism is fine (I actually quite like JFK's portrait, for example). But all that flowery BS is mind-numbing. Someone mentioned on Twitter that it looks like one of those Find and Seek pictures out of Highlights magazine; like hidden in the lines you're going to find a wrench, a fire hydrant, and a Model T.


TFG's not even centered properly. The eye (my eye at least) is immediately drawn to the upper right quadrant of the painting - that wall of shrubbery - instead of focusing on the, y'know, alleged focal point of the portrait: the former President.

393 Someone in the last thread mentioned scrolling through all the presidential portraits and so of course I went and did the same.

I recognized everyone back to McKinley (and I only got that one from context, because I knew TR) and then I basically didn't know any of them until Grant.

I consider those times the Good Times. If the president doesn't matter then things must be OK.

Obamas, always helping their friends become rich and famous maybe. Hopefully this time they at least saved US some money ... what did they pay for this paint by number? Must have been under a grand. heh

Hey, that makes sense. That's it, really!

Magritte deliberately painted in the realistic but non-painterly style of commercial advertisements --- as opposed to classic realism or impressionism.

You see this especially in his painting of the anonymous bourgeois, i.e., the guy with the hat. It's supposed to be flat, realistic but unreal, what we might call "photo-shopped."

Racist and horrible and demeaning they may call it but it is brilliant in several ways. It eliminates the purchase of junk food, eliminates EBT cards being sold for 50 cents on the dollar AND eliminates liberal's complaints about "food deserts" which don't allow poor people to purchase good healthy foods (cause they have guards standing next to the carrots, I guess).


Also, as a marketing strategy it is pretty smart to piggy back on up-scale food services like Blue Apron by calling this the "Harvest Box program".

Obama deliberately chose an "artist" famous for horrific kill-whitey decapitation "art" who has his work "ghost-painted" for him by Slave Labor in Communist China.

This is so perfect on so many levels.

And that's without even getting into what an atrocious piece of filth the portrait turned out to be.
