With the exception of the subject matter, I'd say that objectively the artist is very talented. The style looks a lot like the Pre Raphaelites IMHO.

Take the Lady of Shallot for example:

So those kinds of things ruin Kathy Griffin’s career but since black that clown gets a bunch of cash to do awful paintings of an ex president. Got it.

I enjoy the work of John William Waterhouse. Also, plenty of other great artists from this era of art.

I think they are fine as art.

I do think the official portraits are extremely garish for an official portrait. There are a couple of fine portraits of Obama that would have served well. Not sure why they went the route they did.

He's no longer in office and is still disgracing it. He is the only POTUS without a tie surrounded by flowers. Way to follow decorum Lord Zero, such gravitas.

Both official portraits look "cartoonish" to me, especially when compared with the other official portraits it will be walls with. The first picture above is more lifelike, so we know the artist is capable of realism.

As for the subject matter, I do find it odd the first "head chopper" is dressed in Renaissance era clothing.

Yep, let Trump or Bush pick an artist with paintings of white people decapitating blacks and see if the left considers it "art".

Is that Obama without his white mom's DNA included? He doesn't get that dark standing outside all day in June.

Beautiful painting.

Look at the detail in the background of this painting. Compare it to the flower wallpaper of the artist that did Obama and the headless white women.

Certainly not an art critic, but one painting looks very realistic, the others - not so much.....

A significant part of the problem regarding the wallpaper background - you need to be extremely detailed regarding the repetition of the pattern. The detail is there; however, the wallpaper is not "realistic" because the pattern has too many differences. The lady of Shalott (misspelled it the first time) painting has a background that the artist put a lot of detail into without the constraint of having to paint identical objects. Regarding the first painting in the OP, the ability of the artist to effectively incorporate a see thru lace cape that looks like you are looking at wallpaper thru lace is pretty impressive IMHO.

The subject matter of Obama's artist is morally objectionable. I'm sure the artist will spin it as her interpretation of a "young black woman overcoming both institutionalized racism and the glass ceiling of patriarchal society" - we know it's little more than a cliche'd excuse to paint violence against a different race of people.

The dems... play the victim and wonder why the races don't get along... or their is some backlash against Obama... but this is Obama... he has always thumbed his nose at convention and has always used 'dog whistles" to signal to his base that he is a SJW.

She seems to be influenced by Gauguin.

Serious, there is a heavy influence of Gauguin style in her paintings, especially the Michelle Obama one.
