I had to go and see the #presidentobama portrait. More wonderful in real and large painting. It was hard to take a photo as crowds wee huge on #presidentsday. He gazes to the right, a piercing and concentrated gaze with a certain perplexity and gravitas, in this lush vegetation of an Eden like quality. An 8 year term which does now feel like a dream. @nationalportraitgallery #obamaportrait
Seven years ago today, I met @warrenerwilliam in #BuenosAires and he changed my life. Here is a photo in the style of the #obamaportrait to celebrate.

Happy #PresidentsDay. In honor of “president day” I am posting the recently unveiled official portrait of @barackobama by @kehindewiley. Congrats to this talented artist for this piece! @barackobama has stated multiple times that he is mostly definitely a feminist! Mr. Obama is the father of two daughters and husband to @michelleobama. Mrs. Obama is literally the most educated First Lady in history. @michelleobama has a degree from @princeton_university and @harvardlaw. The obama administration had the most diverse cabinet in recent presidential history. Obama had 14 minorities and women. Since he was sworn into his presidency, he made it obvious that advancing women’s right was extremely important to him. Mind you, he had zero sexual abuse allegations against him and has only been married ONCE (major couple goals.) A few of his biggest achievements in regards to women’s right are creating the White House Council on Women and Girls, create a position called Ambassador at Large for Global Women’s Issues, and introducing legislation for economic equality. #barackobama#obamaportrait#barack#obama#mypresident#comeback#wemissyou#presidentobama#44thpresident#44#44forever#jesriosart#jesriosartmuse#comeback#wemissyou
Happy President’s Day. Love this incredible portrait by Kehinde Wiley that breaks the mold of classical presidential portraiture—and far from a traditional representation of strength. #obamaportrait#presidentsday#obama#wiley
