Artist Jon McNaughton, who made a name for himself in the world of politics a couple of years ago when he finished painting The Forgotten Man, is debuting a new piece titled Obamanation.
In the following video, McNaughton explains his latest interactive painting which includes 60 symbols that capture the “Obamanation” of the Barack Obama Presidency:
I am just one person, a citizen of this country using my first amendment rights to speak out through my art. This is my declaration that we have never had a president do more to harm our country than Barack Obama.
When I started I wondered if I could put everything he’s done into a single painting. I included over 60 symbols that represent his failures as our President far more than I originally anticipated. All of these symbols are based on fact and linked on my website to credible new sources. To those who would scoff or trivialize this painting, I challenge you to go to my website and study the interactive map and read the sources. No American can analyze these symbols and learn about these facts and in good conscious vote for Barack Obama in 2012. Some people may say this painting is controversial and disturbing but it’s worth it if it will wake up even a single American – because this painting is a representation of Obama’s presidency.
