The Obamas LOVE Their New Portraits—But Twitterites Have Created Some GENIUS Alternatives!

On Monday, the official portraits of Barack and Michelle Obama were unveiled at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC. New York-based artist Kehinde Wiley and Baltimore artist Amy Sherald were selected to do the portraits of the former president and Mrs. Obama.

As People magazine points out, several Twitter users were disappointed that Wiley didn’t take this opportunity to paint Obama in the tan suit he wore to a 2014 press conference, which inexplicably drew so much notice from the public—just as Dutch artist Edwin van den Dikkenberg did in an unofficial portrait of the former president that went viral in June 2017.

So one Photoshop artist edited van den Dikkenberg’s rendering of an oatmeal-suited Obama into Wiley’s portrait.

This evoked a plethora of Photoshopped versions, some of which were the epitome of clever:
