The Obamas’ Official Portraits Are Here. And They’re Stunning.

The Black artist commissioned by Barack Obama to paint his official presidential portrait has unveiled his commemoration of the 44th president. And it’s absolutely stunning.

On Monday morning, painter Kehinde Wiley’s soon-to-be legendary artwork was displayed during an unveiling ceremony at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery. Washington Post journalist Dan Zak shared the paintings on Twitter.

Michelle’s painting by Amy Sherald, who is also Black, was showcased during the ceremony as well.

“I tried to negotiate less gray hair and Kehinde’s artistic integrity would not allow (him) to do what I asked,” Obama joked during the event. “I tried to negotiate smaller ears. Struck out on that as well.”

Ok, now how can we get wallet-sized versions?
