    Just use your photoshop on your computer and make yourself one. Its not even close to art and Im shocked at the Smithsonian. When Warhol did it there werent a million computer programs that any idiot could use and print out to paint over it or whatever the hell you want to do with it. This isnt art its a craft project Ive seen done on Martha Stewart.

    Is this a painting???? It looks like someone just took one of her photos and used the "posterize" filter in Photoshop.



  3. 3

    That's not a portrait, that's a silkscreen, lithograth, etc. You say portrait, I am thinking official portrait of the first lady. It is a bit of an insult, really. Know we are in the twenty first century, but, hopefully, when they do hang an official one, this is not the one they use.

    Ive seen a million portraits like this…I wish they would've hired me to do instead, at least it would be interesting



  5. 5

    BARF!



  6. 6

    This is just wrong wrong wrong. Must be a stupid Liberal who decided to put that one up.



  7. 7

    PROPAGANDA.



  8. 8

    No one is weirded out that she is being portrayed as a white woman?



  9. 9

    Where's the bone through her nose and spear?



  10. 10

    really? you think that you're relevant enough to merit a portrait alongside the likes of michelle obama, george clooney and lebron james? you really are delusional…



  11. 11

    I'm puking in my mouth. I guess some people would consider this hawt, if you're into animals…more specifically, apes.



  12. 12

    Unimpressive.
    I can think of a number of photographers who could do Michelle Obama justice–Patrick DeMarchelier, Yu Tsai, Annie Leibovitz, even Steve Meisel–but instead this crap will hang on a museum wall?
    Poor choice.



  13. 13

    She still looks like a chimpanzee.



  14. 14

    EWWWWW! MORE LIKE CICELY TYSON.



  15. 15

    LOL Seriously? I can do that in less than 5 minutes with anyone's picture. It is called Photoshop's Posterization filter. The Smithsonian considers this prized art? More proof the entire world is shoved far up the entire Obama ass. Wow - just wow.

    Re: No.Talent Blogger – I've noticed too. More often than not lately I check in to see what the 10-20 comments are correcting about on Mario's posts. That or calling him out on his plagiarism.



  17. 17

    WOW.. As a bunch of other ppl said PHOTOSHOP.

    ************ PEREZ…. Pay me 20,000 and I"ll make you look just like this. ************************************



  18. 18

    Can you say Marie Antoinette? BARF…my sentiments exactly.



  19. 19

    You want one. Hahaha! Yeah, sure you do.



  20. 20

    it looks like marie osmand



  21. 21

    yeah. and she's white too.



  22. 22

    THAT'S MICHEL JACKSON, QUIT LIEING MARIO!!!



  23. 23

    That is horrible!! I would not have guessed who it was. It's terrible and it barely resembles her.



  24. 24

    They made her white and she still has that baboon eyebrow thing going. Just saying..



  25. 25

    Re: BLUZULU – HA



  26. 26

    Yeah very Warhol but the only difference being Andy Warhol didn't use a copy machine and photoshop to make his art.



  27. 27

    that looks like Marie Osmond. FAIL



  28. 28

    i'd like to dig it too…dig a big hole to bury this hideous monstrosity in. I wonder how much the "donation" was for the smithsonian to agree to house this eye raper.



  29. 29

    ugh. I can't stand looking at her.



  30. 30

    Re: aokleaves – That is exactlly what I thought when I first saw this portrait. Perez needs to get out of the bubble he's trapped in and experience real art and music. It's time for people to appreciate real art not just treads that can be copied with a few easy steps.



  31. 31

    Maybe she will take a tenth vacation for the year so far and ponder her Marie Antoinette-esque antics, while telling the American people that "they can eat cake."



  32. 32

    Looks like crap… and she still looks like a dude..



  33. 33

    That is not art. That looks like a picture someone put on photoshop and put a shitload of contrast on or something.



  34. 34

    They put bad Photoshops in the Smithsonian? Do you get paid for that? Cause I can supply tons.



  35. 35

    So beautiful! I wish I could go see it in person…

    She's one of the ugliest, mean-faced person on the planet. she's a wide-bodied disgusting person.



  37. 37

    No thanks. I don't worship people or think public figures deserve any praise.



  38. 38

    Re: MMMBabble – Way to be unAmerica and be so divided from part of America and hateful.

    And this is coming from someone who thinks that painting was a stupid idea.



  39. 39

    Re: britneybitches – He's just as relevant and important as them. Why? Because ALL these people are irrelevant and unimportant. They matter just as much as you and me.



  40. 40

    Very nice



  41. 41

    this is NOT a portrait…this is digital crap

    first glance i thought it was MJ

    Then i thought, "who is the white woman?"

    how LAME to be copying the pathetic 'art' of warhol…can't people get any real talent to do a REAL portrait of her? seriously.

    perez is a loser



  42. 42

    She is a bitch that married an ass hole.



  43. 43

    This is a very bad version of a Warhol. Anyone who knows Photoshop could do this too. The art world has gotten so pathetic.



  44. 44

    Lame…no talent needed to do this. What was this PS? I could have done better with a damn flickr account. The real meaning of art is long lost……….sad.



  45. 45

    Warhol's Moms Mabley 1962?



  46. 46

    Nice 'fro!



  47. 47

    Looks like a promo poster for Wild Kingdom.



  48. 48
