Obama portrait called ‘creepy’ for strange features (pictures)


On Monday, Former President and First Lady Barack and Michelle Obama unveiled their official portraits for the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery. The reviews were mixed, and some say Obama’s painting includes a strange portrayal of his left hand, as well as other odd looking features.

The Daily Caller reports: The art community has begun leveling some scathing critiques of the works. 

The rather non-traditional portraits are inspiring a series of conspiracy theories, jokes and further oddities.

As an example, the report says some people claim Obama’s hand was painted backwards, or with six fingers, while others say its a trick of lighting.

Some examples of their tweets on the subject follow, as well as other critiques that include thoughts about a questionably shaped vein on Obama’s forehead, and a comparison to other, more traditional, paintings.
