    Obama hired an artist who has painted pictures of black people holding severed white heas. You cannot possibly defend these black supremacists anymore. It’s fuckinf disgusting

    I don't know why anyone would compare him to Caravaggio. He should be compared to the artists who painted previous Presidents and other notable people. Though since this guy's work is obviously not just a portrait, it has some expressive elements going on to.

    The picture you're referring to is a reference to biblical scripture,

    The story of Holofernes and Judith.

    The artist in question is known to use ordinary people off the street as models for his work.

    I've heard some interviews from the artist and he doesn't strike me as the overtly racist black power type.

    He's more of a fruity high art type of guy.

    Did you not read the OP or the interview posted? He said it was sort of kill the withey thing while using the Judith famous story as a theme.

    It was a reference too, sure.

    I don't think it's supposed to be taken literal though, it's "high art".

    So the artist's claim to fame is taking famous portraits from white culture and redoing them, but replacing the models with Black people. That's cultural appropriation :D

    [/QUOTE]

    Seriously though, somebody in the other thread said the artist was a Black Hebrew Israelite. If that's true that's not a good look as they are a Black separatist hate group.

    i'm more concerned about the total capitulation of the media to the messiah figure of obama. it's like everybody is hit with schizophrenia. closing in on north korea levels of worship. and for a bland and mediocre president no less.

    And that redhead idiot comedians picture was a reference to biblical scripture. It is unacceptable to promote racism like the artist and the Obama family has done. This is 2018 and this shit should have ended a long time ago.

    It's art, not literal but he decided to make it a racial thing. That was his choice, his vision.

    I like the Obama portrait aside from the background.

    The real story here is Michelle's portrait. That shit is embarrassingly inaccurate.

    Yea except how he only paints black people, and paints black people holding severed white heads to give it a, in his words, a "kill whitey" feel to it... nothing racist about that.

    Trump should go find an artist who specializes in painting whites hanging blacks to do his portrait.

    It’s not his Obama portrait that is compared to Caravaggio, but his earlier paintings which depict the same subject matter.
