    Obama art

    Fiona McCann

    That US President elect is already making his artistic mark – or rather his image, which after all is what it’s mostly about, is being pinned down and snapped up by artists and their collectors. For starters, the now famous red, white and blue image by street-artist Shepard Fairey that appeared on election posters everywhere has been bought by the US National Portrait Gallery. Turns out he’s also going to appear on the cover of a special edition of the Spider-Man comic, in which Spidey, when he gets the nod from Obama, gets to tell the villain as he lands a mighty punch: “The president-elect here just appointed me Secretary of Shuttin’ You Up!”

      Presumably he’ll do a better job than Scooter Libby.
