Barack And Michelle Obama's Official Portraits Unveiled And People Were Impressed By Them
On Monday, February 12th, the National Portrait Gallery unveiled the official portraits of former US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle.
The special event
The unveiling, which took place in Washington, serves as a formal rite of passage for past presidents most of whom have their portraits hanging at the Smithsonian gallery museum.
This particular occasion was one that was very much anticipated. The image of the former POTUS was created by a painter named Kehinde Wiley, while that of Michelle was done by Amy Sherald, another talented artist.
