The artist behind the masterpiece of the former president is Kehinde Wiley. While a serious-looking Barack sitting in front of a wall of foliage is a few states over in Washington, DC, you can check out another work from Wiley right here in Columbus.
At the Columbus Museum of art right now, Wiley’s Portrait of Andries Stilte II hangs on the wall in the Walter Wing at CMA.
