Seurat masters pointillism, a revolutionary new painting technique. Creates A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte!!

The OFR Art Critic Circle (TM) calls it too "fuzzy" and "messy." Seurat, depressed and sickly, dies at 39 only a few years later.

Smoe people who collect gold plated state quarters think of themselves as numismatists. :D

This is the view from my desk. I see this painting 8, maybe 10 hours a day, every day.

I'd ask that all of you who are being critical of the Obama portraits post images of actual paintings, by actual artists, that you have hanging on your respective walls.

I'll wait.

The JFK painting is badass.

The Clinton one looks awkward. The pose is odd.

Its funny how you guys claim Trump is not presidential and yet you look at that painting and think its a great presidential portrait of Obama.
Theres a clear reason you Libs are trying to compare it to other famous works of art but not to other presidential portraits. Side by side it looks like a cartoon compared to the others. Theres nothing presidential about it.

Weiss

Weiss (°1970, Champaign, IL, United States) is an artist who mainly works with painting. By manipulating the viewer to create confusion, Weiss touches various overlapping themes and strategies. Several reoccurring subject matter can be recognised, such as the relation with popular culture and media, working with repetition, provocation and the investigation of the process of expectations.
His paintings are saturated with obviousness, mental inertia, clichés and bad jokes. They question the coerciveness that is derived from the more profound meaning and the superficial aesthetic appearance of an image. By parodying mass media by exaggerating certain formal aspects inherent to our contemporary society, he often creates several practically identical works, upon which thoughts that have apparently just been developed are manifested: notes are made and then crossed out again, ‘mistakes’ are repeated.
His works often refers to pop and mass culture. Using written and drawn symbols, a world where light-heartedness rules and where rules are undermined is created. By using popular themes such as sexuality, family structure and violence, he makes works that can be seen as self-portraits. Sometimes they appear idiosyncratic and quirky, at other times, they seem typical by-products of American superabundance and marketing.
His works are on the one hand touchingly beautiful, on the other hand painfully attractive. Again and again, the artist leaves us orphaned with a mix of conflicting feelings and thoughts.

The difference is that the libs assume that I think that the painting sucks is because of who the painting depicts. I think it sucks and it wouldn't matter who was depicted. So then they go to attacking you for having an opinion. I give up on the meeting in the middle as they can't even see where the middle is at.

I'm sorry, what? Nothing? Nobody?

That's what I thought. Bunch of colorized silver eagle collectors talking trash about Newman, Pogue, and Eliasberg.

Sorry man, 99% of "art" I have seen you post I would not pay $2 for at a garage sale.

For all the defending of this crappy art, the comments must have really hit home with the libs here.......no one could defend those as "portraits" and be honest about it...without being touched in the head.

Defend it as "art"? Maybe.
Portraits? No way.

Power and wealth gained through corruption and deceit should not garner respect. But, you’re a Democratic, so in your world it might.

Take you for example...you are respected for your hard work, dedication and business acumen. The result is wealth and power. Your constant boasting about your results/accomplishments only lowers the level of respect.

The obamas gained their power and wealth before they were accomplished. And they gained it through deceit, corruption and political backstabbing.

Putin is powerful and wealthy...so you respect him? Me neither,except that he is more intelligent than the obamas will ever be. He constantly played them, and those they had “power” over, for the fools they are.

The “respect” you show for obama has ended up almost destroying the US of A in so many regards.
