Washington, D.C.

What really jumps out at me is how much lighter skinned the portrait is than the real life woman.

The artist describes themselves as a “social justice artist” and this example proves VD’s “cost of convergence” to a T. SJ art is not really about art, a SJ school is not really about learning, a SJ business is not really about making money. In the future White House tourists will think Trump (or someone) was a hardcore racist for having a highschooler do their portraits…until the tour guide informs them that the subject chooses the artist.

Both portraits.
I don’t think SJ killed the paintings; rather, Africans — even the stratospherically jaundiced — simply don’t have the necessary appreciation or talent for fine art. They could have chosen from hundreds of White shitlib SJW competent artists, but the Zeroes had to be keepinit real, so instead they commissioned a pair of blecks. #BleckHistreeMunfYo

She ̶b̶o̶o̶n̶rald, first-prize winner of the Portrait Gallery’s 2016 Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition, beat out 2,500 other artists to paint Michelle Obama.

“I paint American people, and I tell American stories through the paintings I create,” Sherald said. “Once my paintings are complete, the model no longer lives in the painting as themselves. I see something bigger, more symbolic, an archetype.”

To paint a sistuh too dark would be a diss, I imagine

The point of those pictures was to lay a giant mud-monkey in the middle of the floor of a white art gallery.

It's your dime, spill it. And also...NO TROLLS ALLOWED~!
