Yesterday I posted an article about the sick racist bastard who did the ‘portraits’ of Barry and his Wookie. From Michelle dressed in a Motel 6 shower curtain to Barry’s oversized hands and squatting against a background of marijuana plants, the memes were flying yesterday. First, a little background on the guy who laughingly calls himself an artist, Kehinde Wiley. I’d bet he has black velvet paintings of panthers and Elvis in his Section 8 apartment.
Artist Who Painted Obama’s Official Portrait Known For Painting Blacks Beheading Whites
The artist who painted former President Obama’s portrait for the Portrait Gallery, part of the Smithsonian Institution, has an interesting past. While reviewing previous works by artist Kehinde Wiley, it was discovered that he has a great fondness for painting black women beheading white women. Both beheading pieces are titled “Judith beheading Holofernes”, referencing a story in the Book of Judith, which involves a beautiful woman who seduces an invading general before he is able to destroy their land, gets him drunk, and then decapitates him.
Typical artists from the Rennaissance era have placed Judith in the role of a scriptural savior, “a type of the praying Virgin or the church or as a figure who tramples Satan and harrows Hell.” Given the historical context and how Wiley recreated it in his works, is hard to interpret his use of this theme as anything other than a blatant statement of racism; black women are the powerful angels of the earth, conquering the white devils.
