Here is an excellent acrylic example from Clayton Singleton: “…painted with layers of color covered with one “skin” color overlayed with an image of Obama with the Presidential oath written and scored throughout the image. I painted this after Barack Obama won the 44th Presidency. It was displayed in The Selden Gallery and published on January 20, 2009 in Portfolio Magazine.”

Obama Bowl (Glazed Hope)

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009 | No Comments »

Shine Chisholm created this hope-themed glazed bowl: “Shepard Fairey’s work inspired me, like many other artists. I had recently begun experimenting by tracing with carbon paper to glaze a detailed image, and this project lent itself to that end very well. the piece is hand-thrown (by me) white stoneware fired to cone 10, glazed and fired to cone 6.” Nice work! More images inside.

Jason Mecier shows us that a presidential  art piece can be more then the sum of its parts. He captures Obama’s image using only junk, or in his own words: “…barack obama using objects of modern america”. I especially like the spaceman in his neck. Jump inside for the full image.
