Washington- Former American president Barrack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama attend the unveiling of their portraits by artists Kehinde Wiley for the presidential portraits.

Obama said, “He listened very thoughtfully to what I had to say before doing exactly what he always intended to do,” he said. “I tried to negotiate less gray hair, but Kehinde’s artistic integrity would not allow it. I tried to negotiate smaller ears and struck out on that as well.”

The final portraits depict Obama sitting straight in a back chair, while Michelle Obama portrait by painter Amy Sherald, shows her in a black and white dress looking thoughtful.
