ARTmonday: Ode to Obama in Art

Artwork Featuring President Obama

President Barack Obama, 2004
Martin Schoeller, Camera Work, Berlin (Artsy)

This is the last Monday of Obama’s presidency.

Yesterday the Artsy newsletter promoted its recent blog post on how artists have captured President Obama’s legacy. Artists have a long history depicting political figures and their work impact public perception.

The Obama artwork Artsy features is quite well known, including photographer Lisa Jack’s black and white portraits of Obama as a college coed; Mariana Cook’s much seen photo of young Barack and Michelle Obama sitting on a sofa in their Chicago living room; and of course, Shepard Fairey.

Pulling images from sites with high end artwork as well as sites on which any artist can offer artwork, I’ve curated portraits of our beloved President Barack Obama. Here are 17 Obama artworks. President Obama, we will miss you.

ARTmonday: 15 Bicycle Artworks

No deep thoughts today, or even particularly serious artwork. Just some fun images of bicycles. Over the weekend it was almost warm enough, by Boston standards (and by that I mean it was over 40 degrees and sunny), to think about getting my bike down from its hanging place and going for a ride on the Esplanade. I settled for a walk It’s wet and muddy, with dirty, frozen mounds of snow still scattered, but I’m hopeful. For now (unless I become a different person and hit the new Soul Cycle),  I’ll just enjoy these 15 bicycle artworks.
