    Barack Obama picks Nigerian artist, Kehinde Wiley to paint his official presidential portrait

    Former US president Barack Obama has selected New-York based artist, Kehinde Wiley, to paint his official portrait.
    Following a tradition that started with George H. Bush, the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery commissions an artist to create a portrait of the president and the first lady after their tenure. Obama’s predecessors have preferred to sit for 90-year old portrait artist Everett Raymond Kinstler, who has painted eight US presidents, but Obama chose to go with Kehinde. The Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery made the announcement yesterday.
