Obama Art: Our Favorite Portraits Of The President (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:
Rafael Lopez

Since the good ol' days of his first presidential campaign, Barack Obama has been a favored subject of painters, sculptors and portraitists from sea to shining sea. Established artists like Shepard Fairey and Rafael Lopez have given the presidential face a little love, while amateur artists across the Internet have created enough Obama art to last a life-term.

Now that the incumbent President has been elected to serve another four years, we can only imagine there's a great wave of new art just on the horizon. While we await more accurate and not-so-accurate presidential likenesses, we thought now was a good time to review the best of what the first term had to offer.

Scroll through the slideshow of our favorite portraits of Barack Obama below. Let us know what kind of presidential portraiture you want to see this term in the comments section.
