Obama envisions the future of the art world...

The tattoo world's Michelangelo, SHAWN BARBER has extended his old school painting chops to the political scene with this commissioned portrait of BARACK OBAMA for the WALL STREET JOURNAL. Gracing the cover of their Tuesday, January 22nd inauguration edition, the move was a bold one for the traditionalist rag that furthers the mainstream embrace of underground artists in the name of Barack almighty. Not only is the Big O leading the charge toward economic and political recovery these days, he seems to be sparking an art world revolution in the process. Of course, this time next year the printed newspaper might just be a thing of the past.
