for those who liked my Obama in Portrait art post which showed some Obama artwork, and I was trying to encourage people to get themselves painted in a pop art style by the cool painters at portrait Xpress, here is something more for you!!

In fact, there is a whole Flikr group dedicated to “obama street art”!!

An entire blog has sprung up entitled The Obama Art Report!!

The recent months have seen a street movement in support of Obama, which the presidential candidate’s campaign itself has embraced!!  Obama for Artists (the store on the obama website) features art and merchandise donated to the campaign by artists to raise money for the movement.

Its incredible to have a presidential Candidate who has inspired such an outpouring of creativity, the effect on voters is yet to be seen I guess….

To provide a bit of balance after my Obama pop-art pictures, here are some of John McCain- I must play fair after all! Down the bottom is a statement by McCain’s team on his stance on the Arts.

To see the Obama art, click here to see my previous post!

To give credit where credit is due, these are from www.allposters.com and not by my artists in any shape or form.

“John McCain believes that arts education can play a vital role fostering creativity and expression. He is a strong believer in empowering local school districts to establish priorities based on the needs of local schools and school districts. Schools receiving federal funds for education must be held accountable for providing a quality education in basic subjects critical to ensuring students are prepared to compete and succeed in the global economy. Where these local priorities allow, he believes investing in arts education can play a role in nurturing the creativity of expression so vital to the health of our cultural life and providing a means of creative expression for young people.”

Finally here’s a photo- as the above pop art images are a bit boring in my view, here at least is a fairly good photo. Click here for my previous poston why I prefer paintings/sketches to photos. My artists (see them in the “important links”) can paint photos 100% by hand from any photo in any style.

Wow, I have some great paintings to tell you about this month. First I want to show you some work from an amazing UK artist, Matt Stollar. He does some awe-inspiring portraits which really are something different. I won’t tell you too much today, but here is an example to get your taste buds working!!  Contemporary paintings by a young talent. Incredible!!! I will keep more of his paintings coming!
These are something else! WOW. We love it, hope you do too!!!!
