LA Street Posters Inspired by Sabo

On Wednesday, July 23, 2014, when President Barack Obama was in Southern California on yet another fund-raising junket to benefit his fellow Democrat politicians, he may have seen bus stops decorated with posters adorned with his face. These were not the Obama Hope posters designed by Shepard Fairey that became icons of the 2008 presidential campaign. These new posters appearing in the affluent Los Angeles neighborhood of Hancock Park were inspired by street artist Sabo, a retired Marine- turned guerilla artist. Instead of the optimistic fantasy of the Hope posters, these images were starkly urban and reflective of today’s actual scandals and multitude of unresolved issues plaguing America under the Obama Administration’s myopic leadership.

George W. Bush: The Art of Leadership

The Art of Leadership: A President’s Personal Diplomacy is an exhibit of 30 portraits of world leaders painted by President George W. Bush. The paintings are on display at the George W. Bush Presidential Center on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, from April 5 to June 3, 2014.

I place a high priority on personal diplomacy. Getting to know a fellow world leader’s personality, character, and concerns made it easier to find common ground and deal with contentious issues. That was a lesson I had picked up from Dad, who was one of the great practitioners of personal diplomacy.” – President George W. Bush
