Nigerian born Artist to paint Former president Barack Obama portrait

Former US president, Barack Obama has made a choice of selecting Nigerian born but US based Kehinde Wiley for his official Presidential portrait.

Wiley is known for his mixture of European and African lifestyle in all his art work. He portraits more of black lives and African tradition in his art, a bit if western but black live.

Wiley did a painting for rapper LL cool J in the style of  John Singer Sargent, Ice T as Emperor Napoleon by David, and young African American men in stained glass tableau, like saints in a cathedral.

His Obama painting will be displayed at the National Portrait gallery in Washington, next year. See photos below.
